Former Eagles wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested and charged Thursday with resisting arrest and possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana, according to a police report.
Green-Beckham was found in a home where police were executing a drug-related search warrant in Springfield, Missouri during a December incident. TMZ Sports obtained footage of the police raid back in December. He had one pound of marijuana in his backpack, plus several vials of THC oil.
According to the Springfield News-Leader, police raided the home about 15 minutes after Green-Beckham’s arrival, and Green-Beckham allegedly jumped out through a window, where he was then tased and arrested. Both charges are considered misdemeanors.

The incident caused Green-Beckham to break his probation after the NFL player was recently released from a 90-day prison sentence stemming from a DWI arrest. The new arrest carries up to a one-year jail sentence and $500 fine.
Green-Beckham was released by the Eagles prior to the start of the 2017 football season. The Eagles had traded fifth-round pick Dennis Kelly to the Tennessee Titans for the troubled receiver in 2015. The team had hoped the former top high school recruit in the country would turn his career around after several run-ins with the law. Green-Beckham was also dismissed from the University of Missouri football team for a domestic violence allegation.
In one season in Philadelphia, Green-Beckham hauled in 36 receptions for 392 yards and two touchdowns. The 40th overall pick in the 2015 draft has 68 catches for 941 yards in two NFL seasons.
