Baylor running back Devin Chafin and a woman were arrested for marijuana possession in Oklahoma on Friday.
According to KWTX.com, the two were returning to Waco from a spring break trip to Colorado, where marijuana is legal. The Tillman County (Oklahoma) Sheriff's Office posted the following to Facebook about the arrest of Chafin and Jennifer Kerr.
At approximately 0805 hours this morning, Sheriff Whittington stopped a vehicle for speeding approximately 13 miles west of Grandfield on Highway 70. During the course of the stop, it was discovered that the occupants were in possession of marijuana and marijuana candy that they purchased in Colorado while on spring break. Both occupants, Devin Chafin and Jennifer Kerr were arrested and booked into the Tillman County Jail on Possession of Marijuana charges. It was learned during this contact that Devin Chafin is a starting running back for Baylor University. We are deeply concerned of the conduct of these individuals. Although marijuana is legal in Colorado, it isn't in Oklahoma. Also, the marijuana candy looks like any hard candy you could purchase in any store. We sure would hate to see a small child ingest this candy that has a high THC content!
Baylor coach Art Briles said Friday afternoon that Chafin had been suspended and the team was gathering more information.
Chafin ran for 578 yards and nine touchdowns for Baylor in 2015 as a redshirt junior. He ran for 119 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries in Baylor's overtime loss to TCU on Nov. 27. He was a three-star running back in the class of 2012 according to Rivals.
