Missouri football's Levi Copelin arrested Thursday

COLUMBIA — Missouri football redshirt freshman Levi Copelin was arrested Thursday at the student ID Card Office in the MU Student Center for disturbing the peace.

Copelin went to the office for a replacement ID and was told a hold on his student account prevented the office from issuing a new card. He allegedly made threatening comments to the staff afterward, and was brought to the university police department later that day for questioning.

Copelin was booked at 9:45 p.m. on a class B misdemeanor charge. He was released late Thursday on a$500 bond and has a court date set for Feb. 19, according to the police report.

This is not Copelin's first incident with the law during his time at Missouri. He, sophomore wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and redshirt freshman Torey Boozer were arrested Oct. 3, 2012, for possession of marijuana.

Green-Beckham also has a second offense this month and was arrested in his hometown of Springfield on Jan. 11 during a routine traffic stop for possession of marijuana.
