Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount Arrested; Pot Charges Expected

Steelers running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount (shut up) were arrested in Ross Township, Pennsylvania and are expected to be charged with possession of marijuana. A motorcycle cop reportedly smelled weed from the car they and another unidentified female were in and pulled them over. Bell was driving and is expected to also be charged with driving under the influence of marijuana.

After pulling them over at around 1:30 p.m. today, the officer found roughly 20 grams of weed in the back of the car. All three admitted the weed was theirs and they otherwise cooperated the whole time. They were arrested and released, but Bell was taken to a hospital to have blood drawn for DUI testing. In Pennsylvania, possession of 30 grams or less is a misdemeanor punishable by up to $500 in fines and/or 30 days in jail.
