The SportsXchange

Purdue dismissed its second-leading tackler from 2011, Dwayne Beckford before the start of the regular season.

Beckford was suspended indefinitely after his fourth arrest since June 2011. He was charged with marijuana possession in December and on Monday was arrested and charged with possession of a synthetic drug and two counts of possession of paraphernalia.

Police reportedly discovered bath salts in Beckford's apartment when responding to a call about a verbal confrontation with a female.
