FORT WORTH - Fort Worth police documents say TCU quarterback Casey Pachall admitted to using marijuana and other drugs during an interview with police.

“TCU 360," the school paper, obtained the police report that detailed what Pachall told investigators after they arrested his roommate, former TCU linebacker Tanner Brock, in February.

According to the police report, Pachall told police he had smoked marijuana and failed a drug test. He also said that he had used cocaine and ecstasy in the past, but he had only used it once.

The undercover sting operation rocked the TCU campus. Two dozen people, many of them students, including four football players, were arrested.

"I've been telling [the players] all along, when you decide to become a Division I player, you decide to become different," said TCU Head Football Coach Gary Patterson to media after the arrests in February.

Patterson released this statement Friday night:

"We were aware of Casey testing positive on Feb. 1. I have always taken a very strong stand on student-athlete health and welfare. We have policies and educational programs in place to help guide our student-athletes. We are committed to helping them make healthy choices and have moved forward. We have had 25 drug tests in the last 18 months, including one by the NCAA at the Rose Bowl. We've had six drug tests since February."

School officials would not say if Pachall had been suspended, but report that he is still on the team.
