By West Kentucky Star Staff
MURRAY - A Murray State University football player was arrested early Saturday morning in Murray on drug and weapons charges, and has been removed from the team.

The Murray Police Department says an officer pulled over a vehicle shortly before 1 a.m. after observing suspicious activity in a parking lot on North 12th Street. The officer said he could smell marijuana when speaking to the driver, 20-year-old Corey T Newble of Jackson, TN. Newble reportedly gave consent to a search of the vehicle, and officers found a handgun and small baggies of cocaine.

Newble was arrested on charges of firearm enhanced trafficking in marijuana, trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, and possession of cocaine.

Murray State football head coach Mitch Stewart announced Newble has been released from the football program for violation of team rules.

Newble, a sophomore wide receiver from Jackson, TN, had 19 receptions for 184 yards this season for the Racers.
