Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been dismissed from the team, coach Gary Pinkel announced Friday.

The school had suspended Green-Beckham indefinitely for a violation of team policy earlier this week after Green-Beckham was allegedly involved in an altercation with his girlfriend and two other women late Saturday night. Authorities said they would not make arrests in the case.

Green-Beckham had been arrested twice in his tenure at Missouri, including once earlier this year for “suspicion of drug activity.”

“This decision was made with the best interests of all involved in mind,” Pinkel said in a statement. “Dorial’s priority going forward needs to be focusing on getting the help he needs.  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.”

Green-Beckham was ranked as the No. 1 recruit in his class when he signed with the Tigers, setting national high school records of 6,353 career receiving yards and 75 touchdown catches at Hillcrest High in Springfield, Mo.

Last season, Green-Beckham had 59 receptions for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns.
