FREDERICK, OK (KSWO) -Baylor University's top running back was arrested Friday morning in Tillman County for marijuana possession.

Baylor running back Devin Chafin and his passenger, Jennifer Kerr, were arrested after Tillman County Sheriff Bobby Whittington stopped them on Highway 70, 13 miles west of Grandfield. Sheriff Whittington says they found several pill bottles filled with marijuana and a couple of bags filled with marijuana candy that looks like lemon drops, which has a high THC content.

Sheriff Whittington said it started with just a simple stop for speeding, but he quickly realized something was wrong with the pair.

"He was exhibiting signs of either being extremely tired or under the influence of an intoxicant, whether it be alcohol or marijuana. And the odor of the marijuana was pretty evident," Sheriff Whittington said.

Sheriff Whittington says the pair bought the marijuana in Colorado over spring break. In all, they had at least four or five grams.

Chafin, a junior at Baylor University and Burkburnett, Texas, native, scored nine touchdowns for Baylor last season.

Chafin and Kerr were released Friday afternoon on a $2,500 bond.
