Marquis Booker, a reserve Missouri linebacker, has been suspended indefinitely by coach Gary Pinkel after his arrest on a felony gun charge.

Occupants in a car with Booker when he was pulled over by police around 4 a.m. Sunday -- Tigers All-America wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and starting linebacker Sean Weatherspoon -- were questioned and released.

That was the case as well with MU recruit George White, and a female in the car with the players, Jessica Reaves.

Chad Moller, assistant athletic director and sports information director, told The Star on Monday that Booker has been suspended indefinitely from the football team. 'That means he cannot practice, although academic services will continue to be available to him,' Moller said. Read more

The universities need to start cleaning up their act and get rid of these thugs. That is all that you read about in the off season --- players arrested. Maybe if the NCAA took a harder stance on this --- arrested you are out for a season, these kids will grow up and act right. I beieve that the University of Tennessee had 8 players arrested since JAN 1st.
