AUBURN — Four Auburn football players have been arrested on misdemeanor drug charges, including starting cornerback Carlton Davis.

Davis, defensive end Byron Cowart, wide receiver Ryan Davis and cornerback Jeremiah Dinson were arrested Saturday on charges of second-degree possession of marijuana, Auburn police Capt. Lorenza Dorsey said Monday. All four are 19 years old.

Dorsey said they were arrested on the 100 block of E. Samford Avenue just off campus. He said he did not have details of the arrests.

Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said the four players were brought to the jail at about 10 p.m. Saturday and were released on bond about two hours later.

Tigers coach Gus Malzahn issued a statement saying: "I am aware of the situation and we will handle this matter appropriately."
