Texas WR Joshua Moore scheduled for court date on Aug. 22 for weapons charge

Posted August 15th, 2019


Texas receiver Joshua Moore has a court date scheduled for Aug. 22 after he was arrested earlier this month on a charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon, according to court documents.

Austin police records show that Moore was arrested on Aug. 1. Austin attorney Mark Sampson, who is representing Moore, declined to comment when he was reached Thursday by the American-Statesman.

Moore has been practicing with the Longhorns this month. In a statement to the Statesman, UT coach Tom Herman said, “We’re aware of the situation with Joshua Moore.”


“We have talked with him and his family and are handling this internally at this time, but will continue to monitor the legal process,” Herman said. “We will determine any further action upon the completion of that process.”

Moore, a sophomore from Yoakum, played in the first six games last year before suffering a season-ending injury. He had seven catches for 53 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown grab against USC.
