Earlier this morning, the football world learned that Texas A&M receiver Ainias Smith was arrested early Wednesday morning by campus police.
According to the Houston Chronicle, he was charged with drunk driving, illegal carrying of weapons and possession of less than two ounces of marijuana.
Texas A&M’s response was not long in coming. According to a report by American football insider Brett McMurphy, the school suspended Smith after his arrest.
“Texas A&M is suspending WR Einias Smith following his arrest Wednesday for illegally carrying a weapon, driving under the influence and possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana,” McMurphy said. “Smith was scheduled to attend SEC Media Days on Thursday, but will no longer do so.”
Fans did not take long to react to the news.
“We’ve already lost Demond Demas because of the portal, and now this. These guys from Eggiland should get together,” one fan said.
Others are focused on what this could mean for the regular season.
“Important news for the rival App State in the second week. Smith is a preseason All American for the Aggies,” the Appalachian State fan said.
