Defensive back Mook Reynolds was arrested and charged for a marijuana-related offense days after he was released from Virginia Tech, according to a published report.

The Roanoke (Va.) Times reported Saturday that Reynolds faces a felony charge for selling and distributing marijuana or for the possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or distribute.

Reynolds, who was dismissed from the program on Monday, is scheduled to appear in a district court on July 27.

“Head coach Justin Fuente indicated on Monday that senior DB Mook Reynolds has been dismissed from the team effective immediately in accordance with Virginia Tech Athletics Department policies,” according to a statement from Virginia Tech on Monday.

“Reynolds had previously been suspended from all team and football-related activities during the spring semester. There will be no further comment on the matter.”

Reynolds recorded 70 tackles last season while playing linebacker and nickel safety for the Hokies, who also saw defensive back Adonis Alexander removed from the program last month due to academic reasons.

Alexander was taken by the Washington Redskins in the sixth round of Wednesday’s supplemental draft. The 6-foot-2, 196-pound Alexander started 15 of 34 games over three seasons at Virginia Tech, recording seven interceptions.
