Players were suspended for drug citation
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Adarius Bowman and Isaiah Thomas, suspended indefinitely from North Carolina's football team last fall after being cited for marijuana possession, are no longer Tar
In a brief statement Friday, the school did not specify whether they left on their own or were dismissed, citing privacy rights. But team spokesman Kevin Best said both remain enrolled.
Thomas, a defensive tackle, and Bowman, a wide receiver, were two of three players indefinitely suspended from the team after campus police entered a dorm room Oct. 10 and confiscated 5.8 grams of marijuana.
The sophomores missed the final six games of the season.
Thomas' case on a marijuana possession charge was continued to
March 7, according to court records. A marijuana possession charge
against Bowman was dismissed Nov. 22.
The third player suspended last fall, linebacker Fred Sparkman,
is not in school and has said he plans to transfer.
