Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A University of Charleston football player has been suspended after being charged with felony possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

Coach Tony Demeo said he suspended junior Aaron Dunlap after his arrest last week.

Dunlap was arrested last Wednesday after campus police went to investigate smoke coming from his dorm room.

A Kanawha County Magistrate Court spokeswoman says the controlled substance was marijuana.

Bond was set at $15,000, but Dunlap was released on personal recognizance.

He has a hearing in magistrate court scheduled for Friday.

Demeo says the 21-year-old Dunlap made a mistake and is suspended pending the resolution of his case.

The 6-1, 195-pound has seven solo tackles and five assists this season.
