Troubles for Brandon Carter, wide receiver for the TCU football team, have now extended off the football field following his arrest Tuesday by Fort Worth police on suspicion of possession of marijuana. Fort Worth officers were on routine patrol in the 1600 block of Calhoun Street in downtown Fort Worth about 5:12 p.m. when they ran the license plate of a 2010 Lexus and found the car had a “warrant hit,” the report states. The officers conducted a traffic stop of the car and subsequently arrested its two occupants, Carter and 22-year-old Alexis Harris, for allegedly possessing less than two ounces of marijuana. In addition, Harris was arrested on two outstanding warrants, the report indicates. The report states Carter had been driving the Lexus but Harris is the car’s owner. Carter was released from the Mansfield jail Wednesday morning on a pre-trial release, according to jail employees. Carter, a graduate of Euless Trinity High School, came to TCU, selecting the Fort Worth college over Oklahoma, with much promise. He was expected to be one of the top playmakers for the Horned Frogs’ in 2013 after finishing the 2012 season with 36 catches for 590 yards and six touchdowns. But last year, after a season plagued with erratic play, Carter was granted a leave of absence from the team in November. He finished the season with 31 catches for 370 yards but no touchdowns after compiling nine in his first two seasons.
