Corey Sutton the star wide receiver for Appalachian State, was charged with marijuana possession last week, according to multiple reports.
Sutton, a redshirt junior, was arrested June 7 following a traffic stop, according to a police report from the Boone Police Department.
Coach Drinkwitz made a comment on the matter saying he was aware of the situation.
“We are aware of the situation and it will be handled internally,” Coach Eli Drinkwitz of Appalachian State said through Joey Jones, associate athletics director of strategic communication.
Sutton was pulled over at 9:48 p.m. because the left headlight of his gray Camaro wasn’t on. The report says that Sutton’s car smelled of marijuana. He admitted to both smoking previously and having more marijuana in the center console of the car.
Sutton led Appalachian in receptions (44), receiving yards (773) and receiving touchdowns (10) as the school’s top target.
