Four men, including one WSU student and two WSU football players, have been arrested for allegedly operating a large marijuana grow.

Pullman Police executed a drug search warrant at an apartment on College Hill early Sunday morning and officers say they seized 38 plants and materials used for distribution.

All four residents of the apartment were arrested including 20-year-old WSU student Bailey Woods, 20-year-old Zachary Uttech, and WSU Cougar backup linebacker Jamal Atafau and Safety Andre Barrington.

Cougar Athletics Sports Information Director Bill Stevens says that Atafau has been suspended from the team whil Barrington has not practiced with the team all season due to academic ineligibility.

All four were arrested for manufacturing marijuana, a felony.
