Marshall star Elijah Pittman tested positive for marijuana during a routine, court-mandated drug screen stemming from a recent misdemeanor battery charge from a physical altercation last year.
Pittman was indicted for the altercation, which he is alleged to have punched another Marshall student knocking him down and rendering him briefly unconscious.
The Huntington Herald-Dispatch reported that Pittman was warned that an addition positive test would result in jail time.
Pittman, a senior, led Marshall in scoring a year ago with an average of 16.1 points per game.
