Two Marshall University football players have been suspended after being arrested on drug charges in western West Virginia.
Tailback Darius Marshall and defensive back DeQuan Bembry, also known as DeQuan Starling, were arrested early Saturday in Cabell County and charged with possession with intent to deliver. An officer at Western Regional Jail said they both were being held there on $20,000 bond.
The officer did not know if the players had an attorney.
Last season as a sophomore, Marshall ran for 1,177 yards and scored five touchdowns. Bembry had 80 tackles, including 7.5 for loss, and intercepted a pass as a redshirt freshman.
Marshall coach Mark Snyder says he's disappointed in the player's decision-making.
