Editor’s note: a previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Cain was cited for marijuana possession Saturday night, rather than Sunday night. 

Redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Demetrius Cain was cited for marijuana possession Sunday night, according to the WKU Police Department crime logs.

The Princeton native was given the citation at the Kentucky Street Apartments shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday, according to the log.

“We are aware of the incident, and Dee Cain is currently suspended,” the program told the Herald Monday. “Additional disciplinary measures have been handled internally.”

Cain has played in four games this year, making appearances in WKU’s losses to Wisconsin, Louisville and Maine, as well as the Hilltoppers’ win over Ball State.

Cain played in nine games as a redshirt freshman in 2017 prior to suffering an injury against Vanderbilt on Nov. 4. He recorded seven total tackles, one sack, 1.5 tackles for loss and two pass defenses that year.
