Are any other Patriots players involved in this recent arrest of Cornelius

George Mason Patriots guard Andre Cornelius was arrested on Wednesday morning for possession of marijuana on the campus of the university. Cornelius just completed his eligibility from the basketball team earlier this March when the Patriots were knocked out of the CAA tournament by eventual tournament champion VCU Rams.

This is not the first incident involving Cornelius with the law. He was arrested on charges of credit card fraud back before the basketball season began and was suspended for the Patriots' first 10 games.

Cornelius looks to be the only Mason player involved in this situation at this time. The university's athletic department released a statement that acknowledged the incident, but provided no further comment.

This was not the only arrest for a CAA team. The night prior to Cornelius' arrest, Old Dominion Monarchs leading scorer Kent Bazemore was arrested in connection with a DUI charge last summer prior to Old Dominion's CIT game against Mercer.
