UTC football outside linebacker Kennington Cadwell was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with selling marijuana.

Cadwell, 20, is also charged with DUI, driving on a revoked license, and a light law violation.

UTC officials said Cadwell is suspended indefinitely.

Officers said while patrolling the area of the university at 2:53 a.m. they noticed a silver Chevrolet Trailblazer that did not have a functioning tail light.

While behind the vehicle, officers said they also could smell a strong odor of marijuana. Officers activated lights and siren and made a traffic stop.

Officers said there was a strong smell of marijuana from the vehicle. Cadwell told police it was in the back of the vehicle.

Cadwell was placed in handcuffs, while officers located a duffel bag in the back seat which contained a box of plastic sandwich bags, a scale and a glass jar filled with 22 grams of marijuana.

Officers said Cadwell first said he did not want to speak with them, then he made a statement. He told them he "messed up."

He said he was smoking marijuana while driving, but "I'm not that high."

Cadwell said he had been dealing marijuana for about a month and a half. He said he buys an ounce at a time.

It was found that his driver's license had been suspended in Georgia.

The 6'6", 300-pound lineman is from Decatur, Ga., and played for Columbia High School.

He was a sophomore this past season.
