PULLMAN — Washington State point guard Reggie Moore was arrested Tuesday on two misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and the use of drug paraphernalia.
The arrest by the Washington State University Police Department stems from offenses allegedly committed Dec. 11 at Scott Hall.
Moore, who allegedly had less than 40 grams, faces a minimum sentence of one day in jail and a fine, typically between $250 and $500. Washington State coach Ken Bone was conscious of the situation soon after it transpired.
“This is a team matter that we take very seriously, ” Bone said. “We initially learned about this incident Dec. 12, and at this time we have dealt with, and are still dealing with the issue.
“We will take further appropriate action if necessary.”
An All-Pac-10 Freshman Team selection a year ago after averaging 12.7 points and four assists, the 6-foot-1 Moore missed the first four games this season with a wrist injury. Right now Moore, a Seattle product, is putting up 7.7 points a game to go along with 3.6 assists for WSU (10-4, 0-2).
Moore was recently named one of 66 candidates for the 2011 Bob Cousy Award, which goes to the best college point guard in the country.
