Former Virginia Tech defensive player Mook Reynolds was arrested by Blacksburg police on Monday, the same day he was dismissed from the university’s football team.
Reynolds faces a felony charge of the sale or distribution of marijuana or the possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or distribute it.
The case was filed Friday on the Virginia courts’ website. He is due to be arraigned in Montgomery County General District Court on July 27.
The date of the offense was listed as Sunday, although the arrest took place Monday at an undisclosed time. Reynolds, who is referred to on the court website as Jamon Antonio Reynolds, was released on his own recognizance.
Blacksburg police declined to provide additional details Monday.
Virginia Tech announced Monday morning that Reynolds had been dismissed from the team “effective immediately.” Tech also revealed Monday that Reynolds had previously been suspended from the team during the spring semester.

He started 13 games in 2016, when he had 64 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and six pass breakups .
