Redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Jalen Madden was cited for marijuana possession Thursday, according to WKU Police Department crime reports.

Madden was given the citation at the Kentucky Street Apartments at 8:59 p.m. Thursday, according to the report. He also received discipline from the program. 

“Jalen Madden was suspended and did not travel with the team to the game at Charlotte,” the program said in an email to the Herald. “Additional disciplinary measures have been handled internally.”

Madden, a native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, has played in four games this season, as he saw action against Wisconsin, Maine, Ball State and Marshall. He did not play in the Hilltoppers’ games against Louisville or Charlotte.

Madden also played in four games as a redshirt freshman but missed most of the season due to injury. Madden came to WKU rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports.
