    Texas A&M freshman defensive lineman Isaiah Golden is free on $2,000 bond after a weekend arrest for marijuana possession.

    Bryan police say the 19-year-old Golden was arrested Saturday night at an apartment complex. Details of the misdemeanor arrest aren't immediately available.

    Aggie athletics spokesman Alan Cannon told The Eagle of Bryan-College Station he wasn't aware of the arrest but said it's school policy to immediately suspend a student-athlete after an arrest pending further investigation.

    The paper also reports player Darian Claiborne, who was arrested last year on a similar possession charge, was taken to jail and charged with a noise violation.

    Golden is from Carthage in Northeast Texas. He started six of the 11 games he played last season.

    Conviction on a charge of possession two ounces or less of marijuana could get Golden up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
