RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Two North Carolina State football players face misdemeanor drug charges after police visited their apartment during a sexual battery investigation.

N.C. State University police Maj. David Kelly said running back Shadrach Thornton and safety J.J. Jones were cited Wednesday with misdemeanor simple possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. In a probable cause affidavit for a search warrant, authorities say they were following up on the sexual battery case and named Thornton as the suspect.

Kelly says no charges are filed in the battery case.

In a statement Thursday, the school says coach Dave Doeren has indefinitely suspended Thornton; Jones had earlier decided to transfer.

Thornton, the Wolfpack's leading rusher, is receiving counseling as part of a deal with the court to defer prosecution for assault on a female in June.
