Jordan Etier has been released from the Texas baseball team, school officials announced Monday.
 
The senior infielder was arrested over the weekend for possession of marijuana and evading police, both misdemeanors. Etier will remain enrolled at the University of Texas but will be prohibited from participating in any team-related functions.
 
A starter at second baseman last season, Etier, a graduate of Westlake High School, had a .237 batting average and hit two home runs.
