A marijuana possession charge against TCU wide receiver Brandon Carter was dismissed Tuesday, court records show.

Carter, 21, was arrested April 22 after Fort Worth police pulled over a 2010 Lexus he was driving in the 1600 block of Calhoun Street in downtown Fort Worth.

Police made the stop after checking

the license plate and finding that Alexis Harris, the car’s owner and a passenger in the car, had an outstanding warrant.

Both were arrested on suspicion of possessing less than 2 ounces of marijuana. Harris, a 22-year-old junior who left the TCU women’s soccer team last fall, was also held on two traffic warrants. Carter was charged with marijuana possession April 23.

Tarrant County court records show that the charge was dismissed at the prosecutors’ discretion.

The Tarrant County district attorney’s office issued a statement Tuesday afternoon, saying: “Upon further review, this office determined the evidence was insufficient to prosecute Carter. He was merely the driver of a vehicle owned by a passenger. His case was dismissed on Friday, May 23.”

The decision does not affect the case against Harris, spokeswoman Melody McDonald said in the statement.

Carter’s attorney, Michael Schneider, said the charge was dismissed after police body camera videos of the traffic stop showed that the marijuana was in Harris’ purse, not in Carter’s possession.

“It was really a situation where Brandon was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Schneider said.

He said the district attorney’s office “did the right thing.”
