RICHMOND, Va. --  Richmond Police arrested Jeremiah Hamlin, a former running back for the University of Richmond Spiders football team, and charged him with possession of marijuana. Hamlin was arrested after picking up three pounds of marijuana at a local post office last week, police said.

A statement from the University of Richmond said Hamlin was no longer a member of the football team, nor a student at the university.

Hamlin began the year as a sophomore running back for the Spiders. The Jacksonville, Florida native was the team's fourth leading rusher. He appeared in seven games, but did not play in Richmond's most recent win over Albany.

Hamlin was arraigned in Richmond General District Court Friday morning. His next court date was scheduled for February 10.

This is a developing story.
