Mizzou basketball player arrested during traffic stop

COLUMBIA, Mo. - University of Missouri freshman Jeremiah Tilmon was arrested on Friday morning at 1:42 a.m. for a minor in possession of alcohol after a routine traffic stop.

An MUPD spokesman says an officer pulled Tilmon over for an improper lane change.

The Mizzou basketball team released this statement on Monday.

"The Mizzou Men’s Basketball program and head coach Cuonzo Martin are aware of the incident, and the matter will be handled internally."

Tilmon signed to play with Mizzou in May. The freshman is a part of the Tigers 7th ranked recruiting class in the nation, according to rivals.
