The offseason is no stranger to poor judgment and bad behavior as that trend looks to continue in Columbia following the reported arrest of junior defensive lineman Nate Howard by campus police on drug charges.
According to MU police, Howard, who was driving alone, was pulled over at 7:04 Wednesday night on Providence Road in Columbia for having expired tags.
Police found mushrooms and marijuana in Howard's vehicle. Weimer said officers then discovered psilocybin mushrooms and 10 grams or less of marijuana.

Authorities believe the 66-year-old had lived in his van near the scene of the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia , since March. Stephen Brennwald, another YMCA member, said he never saw Hodgkinson talk to anyone and figured the man was a "loner".
Howard was charged with possession of a controlled substance and other offenses. Howard was the only person in the auto. His bail was set at $5,500.
Howard, 20, was poised to enter the fall with a shot to start on the Tigers' defensive line. "Nate is suspended indefinitely", The University said in a statement. Howard saw game action late in the 2016 season, appearing in four games with three tackles.
