BRYAN, Texas -- Texas A&M freshman defensive lineman Isaiah Golden was free on $2,000 bond after a weekend arrest. He faces a marijuana possession charge.

Bryan police say the 19-year-old Golden was arrested Saturday night at an apartment complex. Details of the misdemeanor arrest were not immediately available.

School spokesman Alan Cannon told The Eagle of Bryan-College Station he wasn't aware of the arrest but says it's school policy to immediately suspend a student-athlete after an arrest pending further investigation.

Golden is from Carthage in Northeast Texas. He started six of the 11 games he played last season. Conviction on a charge of possession of two ounces or less of marijuana could get Golden up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.

Freshman linebacker Darian Claiborne also was arrested and charged with a noise violation, The Eagle reported.

Claiborne was also arrested in December on a possession charge and A&M suspended him for the Chick-fil-A Bowl. He was fined $300 and released.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
