University of Miami sophomore linebacker Gabe Terry was suspended indefinitely by the Hurricanes on Friday, after he was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana.
Miami-Dade County officials say Terry was booked into custody at 8:41 am Friday and charged with possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis, a felony, as well as resisting an officer without violence, a misdemeanor.
According to jail documents, Terry was allegedly found with 26.8 grams of pot.
Terry remains in jail and his bond has been set for $5000 for the possession charge. A $1000 bond was issued for the resisting without violence charge.
He is expected to make a court appearance Saturday.
As for Terry’s future with the Hurricanes, Jorge Milian of the Palm Beach Post tweeted that “his name [is] no longer on the roster; history says that is usually end of your UM career.”
Terry, who reportedly was also a standout wrestler in high school, attended Palm Beach Central in West Palm Beach, Florida, and was a three-star member of Miami’s 2012 recruiting class.
Following his arrest, Terry’s former high school coach released the following statement:
“I am aware of what happened today and saddened by the event,” Palm Beach Central coach Rod Harris told the Post. “It’s an unfortunate situation. The Palm Beach Central football program will not turn our backs on an alumni. We will try to help him in any way we can.”
During his freshman year, Gabe played in seven games (mainly on special teams) and made five tackles and blocked one punt.
The Sun-Sentinel points out Terry is the second member of the University of Miami’s football team to be arrested since the end of the 2012 season.
Cornerback Thomas Finnie was kicked off the team in December following his arrest on grand theft charges for stealing a laptop from a university dorm room.
