Three members of the Texas A&M-Kingsville football program were suspended Friday afternoon after being arrested Thursday night on charges related to possession of marijuana and/or outstanding warrant.

Director of sports information Shane Meling confirmed the suspensions and said that there is no time frame for the duration of the suspensions, as they will wait for the legal process to play out.

According to Kingsville Police Chief Ricardo Torres, Senior wide receiver Damian Couthren and graduate assistant defensive backs coach Roderick Mosley were arrested on an outstanding local traffic warrant at a private residence in Kingsville.

While there, police also charged Couthren and sophomore running back Rickey Lincoln, who was present at the residence, with possession of marijuana and issued an additional charge to Mosley of child endangerment.

“We appreciate the cooperation we received from the University Police Department and university administrators,” Torres said. “We all are working hard to make this a better community.”

Couthren has played in five games this season after struggling with injuries since last season and Lincoln has played sparingly this season for the Javelinas as their fourth running back.

Mosely is currently in his first season as the defensive backs coach for the Javelinas after playing for AMK, he is also playing for the San Jose Sabre Cats of the Arena football league.

No sentences have been handed out as the case is still being investigated
