A few hours ago, MDS brought you the news that Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was going to be arraigned on a marijuana possession charge on Monday.
That’s what everyone expected to happen, but Leshoure failed to show up for the arraignment. Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press reports that the Lions have been in contact with the police and Leshoure is now expected to be arraigned on Wednesday. Leshoure may face contempt of court charges, according to Julie Mack of MLive.com.
“He was supposed to be here and he didn’t show up,” Berrien County Prosecutor Arthur Cotter said. “I’m a Lions fan, but he’s going to be treated like anybody else.”
Leshoure was arrested on March 12th after police pulled over a car he was in and allegedly saw him trying to eat marijuana to keep it from being discovered. He was ordered to spit out the drug and did, according to the police report. This is the second marijuana-related incident of the year for Leshoure, who missed his entire rookie year with the Lions after injuring his Achilles tendon.
