UK dismisses safety Walker following drug arrest
Marcus Walker was arrested last week for allegedly trafficking marijuana and cocaine.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has dismissed safety Marcus Walker following his arrest for trafficking cocaine and marijuana.
A release from the school Tuesday had no other comment on Walker besides listing career statistics of 17 tackles in 21 games. The junior faces a June 20 hearing in Fayette District Court after being released Friday on a $1,000 surety bond.
Lexington Police arrested the 21-year-old Walker and another man on Thursday morning after finding at least five pounds of marijuana and four grams of cocaine during a search of an off-campus apartment.
The arrest citation stated that a large amount of cash and a cash counter were found in the search. Walker, of Lake Wales, Florida, was also charged with possessing drug paraphernalia.
