LOGAN -- One of the Utah State Aggies' star basketball players was arrested and charged with felony distribution of marijuana.
Jarred Shaw, USU's leader in scoring and rebounds, was officially charged Friday with distribution of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to court documents.
Shaw, 23, was suspended from the basketball team by coach Stew Morrill for "violation of team rules," according to the Associated Press. On Dec. 15, police responded to a call at a home near the university and found marijuana.
An underage girl was also taken into custody and referred to juvenile court.
Logan Assistant Police Chief Jeff Curtis said the amount of marijuana was "more than personal use."
Shaw's distribution charge was increased due to the alleged crimes being in close proximity of the university, a drug-free zone, according to court documents.
Shaw is due to make his initial appearance in the 1st District Court of Logan on Monday.
Shaw, a 6-10, 235-pound senior transfer from Oklahoma State, is from Dallas.
