More information has been revealed about the early May police encounter with Ole Miss basketball star Marshall Henderson.

A Wall Street Journal report from Thursday revealed police stopped the Ole Miss star in Oxford for speeding on May 4th. A report from USA Today says the officer smelled marijuana in the car, found the drug and was told by Henderson there were no more substances in the vehicle.

The report says the officer called in a K-9 unit that found small amounts of cocaine. When asked, Henderson said he forgot the drug was in the car. When an officer noticed the shooting guard's chest was rising rapidly and had shaking hands, he asked what was wrong. Henderson said he didn't like being around cops.

The citation occurred in May, but the university suspended the guard on Wednesday, though they have not confirmed the reason.
