TCU held a news conference Wednesday morning to announce that 17 students have been arrested on drug charges. The school said four of those students are football players and that it likely also involved students from three fraternities.
Three of the students were arrested on campus and 14 were arrested off campus. TCU chancellor Victor Boschini, Jr., said the school has never experienced mass arrests like this before. The investigation began about six months ago and the Fort Worth Police Department worked with the TCU campus police. Captain Ken Dean of the FWPD said they targeted dealers and those supplying drugs.
The names are expected to be known later today.
"I'm extremely concerned," Boschini said. "If one kid is involved, it's one kid too many."
