SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Police say former NFL and University of Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been arrested after diving through a glass window when officers arrived to search a Missouri house.

The Springfield News-Leader reports officers who caught up to the 25-year-old found a pound marijuana in his backpack. A search found another 7 pounds in the house.

Green-Beckham was booked into jail early Thursday morning, but online records do not show formal charges have been filed.

Springfield police spokeswoman Jasmine Bailey says officers were serving a warrant Wednesday night when Green-Beckman fled. Green-Beckham wasn't the target and does not live at the home. Another man was also arrested.

Green-Beckham was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the NFL draft in 2015. He was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles and cut before the 2017 season began.
