Texas senior starting cornerback Tarell Brown faces marijuana possession and weapons charges following his arrest and booking into Travis County Jail early Monday morning. Former Longhorn linebacker Aaron Harris also faces marijuana possession charges.

The marijuana possession charges Brown and Harris face are class B misdemeanors while the unlawful carrying weapon charge that Brown faces is a class A misdemeanor.

This is not the first late-night incident involving Brown and Harris and a firearm. On Dec. 12, 2004, someone shot out the window of a truck occupied by Brown and Harris.

And it's another in the line of incidents involving Harris, who played his final game as a Horn in the National Championship game. In the summer of 2004, Harris was badly beaten by a group of assailants in Austin's Sixth Street entertainment district and had his jaw wired shut almost to the start of August camp. In May 2003, Harris was one of three Longhorns (RB Selvin Young, DT Larry Dibbles, former CB Edorian McCullough) arrested by a Brazos Valley Narcotics Task Force officer for allegedly being in possession of less than two ounces of marijuana. All four insisted that the substance was the property of the vehicle's owner, a mutual friend who was not in the vehicle at the time of the arrest. Charges were later dropped against the UT athletes.
