Wide receiver Quan Shorts was kicked off the Texas Tech football team after police in Lubbock, Texas, arrested him on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge.

A Lubbock Police Department statement said officers were at an apartment complex as part of an ongoing investigation on Thursday afternoon when the 21-year-old Shorts was arrested.

Details of the arrest have not been disclosed.

Shorts was in Lubbock County Jail, where records listed no attorney for him.

About two hours after the arrest, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury announced that Shorts had been dismissed from the team and a statement said the university would have no further comment.
