UT baseball player charged with evading arrest, possession of marijuana

Texas Department of Public Safety officers arrested a University of Texas baseball player Saturday afternoon after they say he urinated in public and then fled from officers before ditching a quantity of marijuana, according to arrest affidavits. Jordan Etier, a senior second baseman for the Longhorns, was in Travis County jail Sunday afternoon on $2,000 bail. He was charged with evading arrest and possession of marijuana, both misdemeanors.

A witness told officers that the saw two men, one later identified as Etier, urinating near Waller Creek, north of East 18th Street near campus, the affidavits said. Etier fled when an officer approached, it said. A second officer joined the chase; Etier was caught in a parking garage a couple blocks south, the affidavits said.

One officer said he saw Etier drop what was later identified as about two-thirds of an ounce of marijuana that was wrapped in an ATM withdrawal receipt with Etier’s information on it, the affidavits said. A UT baseball team spokesman said Coach Augie Garrido would not comment because he did not have enough details about Etier’s charges. Etier, picture below in a game held earlier this year, was not seen at a fall game Sunday against Houston.
