COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M standout freshman linebacker Darian Claiborne has been arrested on two drug possession charges.

Claiborne was arrested Sunday on charges of possession of a dangerous drug and possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, according to the Brazos County Jail website.

He was arrested at about 3 p.m. and released less than two hours later after posting $6,000 bond.

Claiborne has 89 tackles to tie for team lead and has seven tackles for losses and two forced fumbles.

The Aggies face Duke in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31.

The team did not immediately respond to a message left seeking comment on the arrest.
