   Suspended Mizzou wide receiver Dorial Green Beckham has been dismissed from the Missouri Tigers' football team.  The university released a statement Friday afternoon saying the decision was made by Head Coach Gary Pinkel in conjunction with Athletics Director Mike Alden.
   In a statement, Coach Pinkel said, "This decision was made with the best interests of all involved in mind."  He went on to say, "Dorial's priority going forward needs to be focusing on getting the help he needs."  He added, "As we have all along, we will continue to do everything we can to assist Dorial and his family.  We care deeply about Dorial and his well-being, but hopefully he can benefit from a fresh start."
   Director Alden also commented, saying in a statement, "We have a high standard of conduct for our student-athletes."  He added that the athletics department is "responsible to the community at large and to the ideals and values of the University of Missouri."  He called Green Beckham's dismissal, "a necessary step" for the team, the department, the school and the community."
   Earlier in the day Green Beckham had released a statement.  His father, John Beckham shared the statement by phone with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Friday.  Beckham told the paper his son wrote the statement himself.
   It reads:
"First and more importantly, I take responsibility for my conduct and my mistakes.  Don't blame my girlfriend or her friends for anything.  I am not looking for sympathy.  I thank those who have given me concern.  I have been young and dumb.  I want to be better.  During my suspension I'm entering counseling.  With help, I know I can be stronger emotionally and spiritually.  My relationship with God, my family, friends, teammates and coaches are most important in my life, not football.  It may not be possible to fix everything, but it won't be for not trying. - Dorial Green Beckham"
 
   Green Beckham had been the subject of a burglary investigation after allegedly forcing his way into an apartment Sunday morning in a dispute with his girlfriend.  The investigation was closed after the victims declined to press charges saying they feared community backlash.  On Monday, Coach Gary Pinkel had announced Green Beckham's indefinite suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules.

   Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham won't face any charges related to a burglary reported at the Brookside Apartments early Sunday morning. That's according to a statement released by Columbia Police Thursday.

   The incident report, released the same day, alleges that Green-Beckham had forced his way into the apartment, injuring a resident by knocking her down some stairs.  Green-Beckham had reportedly been looking for his girlfriend at the time.  

   According to the police report, the two women who had tried to bar his entry have declined to press charges.  The injured woman reportedly told police she was afraid of the community and media backlash if she pressed charges against the star MU player.  

   Tigers coach Gary Pinkel had suspended Green-Beckham indefinitely for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

   Burglary, not drugs.  That's what Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham may be involved with according to police in Columbia.  

   Until Wednesday's public information report, the police had declined any comment on the pending investigation into Sunday's burglary involving Green-Beckham, though it's still unclear if he is a suspect, victim or witness.  

   The report says police responded to a first-degree burglary at the Brookside Townhomes about 2:30 Sunday morning.  The Columbia Missourian quotes residents as saying Green-Beckham was involved in an incident there around that time.  But no one has been arrested or charged in the case.  

   On Monday, Mizzou Coach Gary Pinkel announced the Tiger stand-out had been indefinitely suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules.

   Green-Beckham has been the subject what police have called two separate marijuana-related arrests within about 15 months, the latest in January in his home town of Springfield.  But his adoptive father, Hillcrest High School football coach John Beckham, tells the Springfield News-Leader that his suspension isn't related to those incidents.

Published in Local News
   SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Two men arrested along with Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham have told police the pound of marijuana found in their car did not belong to the star football player.
   Criminal charges have not been filed after the Springfield native and two friends were arrested in January on suspicion of felony drug distribution. Police say they found the pot and other drug paraphernalia in the trunk of a Jeep Cherokee driven by John McDaniel.
   The Springfield News-Leader reports a probable cause statement shows that Patrick Prouty said he owned the pot but said it was for personal use. McDaniel said he had hidden one gram of marijuana in the car's glove box.
   Green-Beckham was charged in October 2012 with marijuana possession in Columbia and later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing.
