Vols Detrick Mostella Has Court Date For Possession of Unlawful Drug Paraphernalia

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Former Tennessee guard Detrick Mostella has a court date later this month after being cited on a misdemeanor charge of possession of unlawful drug paraphernalia.

Tennessee announced Tuesday that Mostella was dismissed from the team. The release announcing Mostella’s exit didn’t specify a reason for his dismissal. Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said in a statement that Mostella “unfortunately has not lived up to” the “standards that members of this program will be held to.”

Mostella, 23, has a Jan. 25 court date on the misdemeanor charge. University of Tennessee police said Mostella was cited Dec. 14 after officers responded to a report regarding “the odor of marijuana” in his residence.

The Knoxville News-Sentinel first reported the citation.

Mostella was averaging 10.5 points per game for Tennessee (8-7, 1-2 SEC).
