A theft charge against Texas Tech running back Da'Leon Ward has been dismissed, according to a report from the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
According to the paper, Lubbock County District Attorney Matt Powell said there was not significant evidence that a jury would find him guilty.
"I'm sorry the young man got arrested," Powell told the paper. "He should have never been arrested, the case should have never been filed."
Ward, a sophomore, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of theft between $2,500 and $30,000.
Before redshirting last season, Ward became the first freshman to lead Texas Tech in rushing since Shaud Williams in 1999. The former Dallas high school player had 428 yards rushing and three touchdowns in 2016.
Ward was in the mix to be the starting running back for the Red Raiders before the arrest.
