A drug bust on and around Texas Christian University’s campus in Fort Worth Wednesday led to the arrest of 18 people, including four football players.

TCU Chief of Police Steve McGee told a news conference that the students who were arrested sold drugs to undercover narcotics officers on the campus and off-campus at a restaurant and two nearby grocery stores.

McGee says the students sold marijuana, cocaine, Molly (Ecstasy in powder form), Ecstasy in pill form, acid and prescription drugs including Xanax, hydrocodone and others similar to OxyContin.

TCU Chancellor Victor Boschini Jr. says the busts are not a football problem, they’re a student problem.  Boschini says TCU has never experienced so many student arrests, and all the arrested students have been suspended from school and they could be expelled.

TCU Head football coach Gary Patterson says he is shocked, sad, and angry to know that some of his players were involved.  Patterson says he wants it to be known that his program will not tolerate illegal drugs, and the four players have been kicked off the team.

TCU is the last place in the country where you would expect to see something like this. This just proves how pervasive illegal drugs are in our culture. If it can happen at a fine Christian school like TCU, it can happen anywhere. We all need to wake up to that fact.
