Arizona football player is arrested, cut from team

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Sophomore safety Patrick Onwuasor has been cut from the Arizona football team after being arrested and accused of drug dealing and having a weapon.

Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez announced Tuesday that Onwuasor ``has been removed from the program.''

Tucson police say the 20-year-old Onwuasor was taken into custody Monday on suspicion of four felony counts after a search warrant was served at his apartment.

Police say the warrant was obtained through a separate investigation into an April 29 home invasion in California in which Onwuasor wasn't implicated as being present.

Officers reported finding narcotic drugs, narcotic paraphernalia, marijuana and a weapon during the search of Onwuasor's apartment.

He was indicted last week, arraigned Monday in the presence of his attorney and released. Onwuasor's next court date wasn't immediately clear Tuesday.
