ORIGINAL STORY

A Virginia Tech basketball player did not show up for his scheduled court appearance on Thursday.

Ty Outlaw was charged in March with marijuana possession, a misdemeanor. 

As we've reported, court documents show Blacksburg police noticed a "strong odor of burnt marijuana" coming from his apartment. 

The next day, police searched it and found a white pill, two yellow capsules, an electronic vape cartridge, and green plant material. 

Outlaw was in California at the time and passed a drug test. He was allowed to play in the March Madness game against Duke University. 

The judge fined Outlaw $100 and suspended his license for six months.
