A Stony Brook football player and decorated former Sachem North athlete has been charged with several counts of drug possession, according to a report published Wednesday in Newsday.

Police said Davon Lawrence, 21, of Lake Ronkonkoma, was parked in a business parking lot on Portion Road on Friday afternoon when he was arrested.

Following the arrest, Stony Brook University said it does not condone this type of alleged behavior. "The student has been removed from the team effective immediately; we fully support and are committed to following the judicial process and will respond accordingly," the university told Newsday.
