DAVENPORT, Iowa -- PGA Tour rookie Matthew Every was arrested for marijuana possession on Tuesday, according to the Quad-City Times.

The paper said Every was one of four people in a room at the Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf when authorities were alerted to a strong smell of marijuana in the hallway outside.

The 26-year-old Every and two others were arrested for possession of the drug and the paper said Every was booked into the Scott County Jail. He posted bond and was released later Tuesday evening, the paper reported.

The PGA Tour tests for marijuana, but does not release names of those who test positive for recreational drugs.

Every, who won the Tour Championship on the Nationwide Tour last year, is in the field this week at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill. In his rookie season on the PGA Tour, Every has just one top-10 finish and has missed the cut in six of his 13 starts.
