SoonerScoop.com reports, Misdemeanor charges for marijuana possession against Oklahoma starting wide receiver Jalen Saunders have been dropped due to a lack of evidence after he and teammate Cortez Johnson were arrested and charged with the crime Dec. 2, 2012 during a traffic stop in Norman.

While Saunders' charges were dropped, Johnson pleaded guilty Tuesday in front of Cleveland County Judge Steve Tice to one count of misdemeanor marijuana possession and will be placed on six months probation.

Johnson and Saunders were arrested early morning Dec. 2, and released on bail between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. just one day after clinching a share of the Big 12 title with a 24-17 win against Texas Christian. (More at Sooner Scoop)
