Former UH player and son of Texans' Vince Wilfork arrested on drug charge

FRIENDSWOOD, TX (KTRK) -- Former University of Houston football player D'Aundre Holmes-Wilfork was arrested last week, according to Galveston County court records.

Holmes-Wilfork, 19, is the son of Houston Texans defensive tackle Vince Wilfork. As a freshman, he spent the last season at safety for the Cougars.

According to documents, Holmes-Wilfork was arrested in Friendswood on December 21 after the car he was in failed to stop at a stop sign.

Court documents state that officers searched the vehicle and found a blue backpack with marijuana and a prescription-type bottle with a "thick liquid that had a smell similar to cough syrup."

Holmes-Wilfork, a passenger in the car, told police that the backpack belonged to him and that the liquid was "lean," also known as codeine.

He was taken to the Friendswood City jail with bond set at $10,000.

UH Athletics released the following statement:

"We are aware of the situation and D'Aundre is no longer a part of the Houston Football program."
