Dennis Thames S Mississippi State
Backup Mississippi State S Dennis Thames was dismissed from the football squad for the usual "violation of unspecified team rules," but as is usually the case, the "team rules" violated was an arrest.
Thames was booked at 12:17 PM on Tuesday May, 31 on charges of possession of marijuana and alcohol in a motor vehicle, and was released a little over an hour later. This is the second time during his tenure at Mississippi State that Thames has been arrested for alcohol and/or drugs as before his freshman season (he was a redshirt-freshman last season) he was arrested for Public Intoxication-Other Substance. He was also suspended for a game last season for a "violation of unspecified team rules."
