SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 24-year-old former Utah State football player has pleaded guilty to felony drug and weapon charges after he was charged with selling drugs.

The Herald-Journal reported (https://bit.ly/2gPYOgw ) that additional charges against Christopher Copier of Logan were dismissed when he pleaded guilty Monday in 1st District Court to possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and possession or purchase of a firearm by a restricted person.

His sentencing is scheduled in January.

Copier was arrested in April after allegedly selling drugs to undercover officers.

Police said marijuana, the mood-altering drug ecstasy, anxiety pills and other medications were found in a search of his home.

Copier was a tight end who was suspended from the team following his arrest.
