TCU players caught in drug sting
Four Texas Christian University football players were among 17 students arrested Wednesday in a campus drug bust, police said.
Police said those arrested were caught making ''hand-to-hand'' sales of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs to undercover officers.
''There is no doubt,'' TCU Police Chief Steve McGee said at a morning news conference following the arrests. He did not immediately identify the students.

McGee said the arrests came after a six-month investigation prompted by complaints from students, parents and others in the community. Police would not rule out more arrests, but said only people caught selling drugs had been arrested Wednesday.
