Authorities in Springfield were still investigating the case regarding Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham on Monday.

And the investigation could last for up to six months because authorities will be waiting on analysis by the Missouri State Highway Patrol crime laboratory before any charges are filed.

On Friday, Green-Beckham and two other men were arrested after an officer found what he believed was about a pound of marijuana in a vehicle in which the three were in. The vehicle was pulled over because of expired license plates. During the traffic stop, the officer smelled marijuana and found the illegal substance along with assorted drug paraphernalia.

After the three were booked into Green County jail for distribution of a controlled substance, they were released without formal charges while the case is investigated.

This is Green-Beckham’s second drug arrest since joining the Missouri football program.

In October 2012, he and two teammates were arrested outside of Faurot Field on suspicion of marijuana possession. Green-Beckham later pleaded guilty to a city violation of trespassing in that case.

Green-Beckham commented on the situation on his Twitter account Saturday: “People judge before knowing what happen. Let’s not judge me for what happen and don’t saying anything to me to try to bring me down.”
