MOORHEAD - A Minnesota State University Moorhead football player is accused in Clay County District Court of possessing marijuana with intent to sell.

Wide receiver Jabari Taylor, 21, 904 18½ St. S. Moorhead, was charged Monday with one count of fifth-degree controlled substance crime, a felony.

Taylor, who was arrested last Friday, made an appearance in court on the charge Monday morning and was released on his promise to make future court appearances.

Taylor has been suspended from team workouts indefinitely, said MSUM head coach Damon Tomeo.

"We'll address it further when we get all the information," Tomeo said.

According to court documents, officers found marijuana stems, 18 small baggies of suspected marijuana, a MoneyGram receipt and a digital scale in a bedroom identified as Taylor's.

The total weight of the marijuana, which was confirmed in a field test, was approximately 52.6 grams, according to court documents.

Taylor, a junior from Hollywood, Fla., holds MSUM single-season school records for pass receptions (90), yards receiving (1,147) and touchdown receptions.
