Kentucky reserve defensive back Marcus Walker has been dismissed from the team after his arrest last week on multiple drug-related charges.

A Kentucky spokesperson said  Marcus Walker was dismissed from the team after the school was informed of the arrest, according to WKYT.

The Lexington jail website reported that Walker has been charged with purchasing or possessing drug paraphernalia, marijuana trafficking, along with trafficking a controlled substance.

The Lexington Herald-Leader, which acquired a copy of Walker’s arrest records, reported that he was taken into custody on suspicion of trafficking five pounds of marijuana and four grams of cocaine.

Walker, who is a native of Florida, participated in 12 of Kentucky’s 13 games as a sophomore last season, mostly on special teams. The reserve safety recorded five tackles in 2017.
