ZIONSVILLE, Ind. -- The Indianapolis Colts have released Jonathan Newsome, less than a week after his arrest.

Newsome was arrested early Wednesday morning on drug possession charges.

Newsome, a second year player who graduated from Ball State, was arrested on Michigan Road in Zionsville while police were investigating a noise complaint.

He was charged with two counts of Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

He was arrested three years ago in Muncie on the same charge.

Newsome had just 19 tackles in the 2015 season for the Colts. 

Police have not released any further details.
