He was a three-star linebacker out of Forney High School in Texas.

OSU's student newspaper, The O'Colly, first reported Vaughn's arrest.

An Oklahoma State official told the Oklahoman's Scott Wright the school is aware of Vaughn's arrest and "gathering details" about the circumstances behind it.

As of now, Vaughn is still on the OSU roster. They were greeted by three men, two of which lived there and said their roommate, Vaughn, was in his room. The men gave permission to the officers to search for marijuana, as did Vaughn once police spoke with him. Once inside, the found a "small pile of green leafy substance" on the desk in front of the window and a shoe box with a vacuum-sealed food bag containing a "large" amount of what appeared to be marijuana. They also recovered a safe, a set of digital scales, and a vacuum sealer allegedly used to package the marijuana.

In total, they found $2,119 and 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana in his room.

Freshman Brendan Vaughn went to court Tuesday afternoon for his initial appearance.

A Payne County Sheriff's Department document says Oklahoma State police arrested Vaughn on Saturday at Davis Hall, and he was released from jail Sunday after posting bond. "At the jail, he reportedly told officers he was unemployed and made the money from selling marijuana", the report reads.
