    Texas A&M suspended standout freshman linebacker Darian Claiborne after he was arrested on two drug possession charges.

    Claiborne was arrested Sunday on charges of possession of a dangerous drug and possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, according to the Brazos County Jail website.

    He was arrested at about 3 p.m. and released less than two hours later after posting $6,000 bond.
    Claiborne, tied for the team lead with 89 tackles, will miss the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against Duke on Dec. 31.
