Former Oregon tight end Colt Lyerla has been arrested on drug-related charges in Lane County.
Lyerla, who left the No. 2 Ducks earlier this month and plans to enter the NFL draft in April, was held in the Lane County Jail following his arrest on Wednesday.
The sheriff's office says in a statement that Lyerla was observed by a drug investigation unit snorting a white powdery substance while sitting in a parked car. He was arrested on suspicion of unlawful possession of cocaine and interfering with a police officer.
When he decided to leave the Ducks, Lyerla said it was to pursue and NFL career. He had been suspended for Oregon's Oct. 5 game at Colorado by coach Mark Helfrich for an unspecified violation of team rules.
