A former Bryan High football star has been arrested on a warrant related to a capital murder charge.

Brodrick "BJ" Ross, Jr., 20, was arrested in Bryan Thursday after a traffic stop for expired registration.

The officer noticed the smell of marijuana, and Ross admitted to having smoked over a week before.

When asked about a warrant for his arrest out of Tarrant County, Ross said it was because he refused to take a drug test. That's when he revealed he'd previously been arrested for capital murder.

Ross was arrested for the warrant, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a controlled substance.

Ross was a quarterback for the Bryan Vikings. He graduated in 2016.

He was also starting quarterback at McMurry University in Abilene where he led the War Hawks in both rushing and passing yards as a freshman.

He was arrested in January 2017 in the fatal shooting of a man in Fort Worth.

Ross was booked into the Brazos County Jail.
