Thanks to @geoffmitchell for tweeting this to us.

According to a Fort Worth Star Telegram report, Brandon Carter's charges of marijuana possession have been dropped Tuesday, according to court documents.

Carter was originally arrested on April 22 for possession of marijuana after he and his girlfriend Alexa Harris were pulled over. The patrol car pulled them over because the license plate of the 2010 Lexus, which Harris was driving, had a warrant attached to it.

Harris also had two outstanding warrants at the time of the arrest.

According to the latest article, Carter was dismissed at the discretion of the prosecutor. While we don't yet know what this means for Carter's football career at TCU, it could open the door for him to rejoin the team, as long as he continues to work hard in the classroom to get his grades back up.

Which, leads us to the question: do you want Brandon Carter back on the team? (Keep in mind, his absence does play into TCU's APR, which has been staggeringly low over the past two years).

Vote below, and let us know what you're thinking.
