Mikel Leshoure’s arraignment for a marijuana possession charge has turned into a multi-day story and none of the developments look good for the Lions running back.
When Leshoure missed his arraignment on Monday, reports said that he had spoken to the Lions about it and rescheduled the arraignment for Wednesday. Julie Mack of MLive.com reports that isn’t true, however, and that Leshoure hasn’t made any arrangements to show up at Berrien County District Court. Gary Ruhl, the chief of the Baroda-Lake Township Police Department, told Mack that he informed a member of the Lions that Leshoure hadn’t rescheduled the arraignment.
“He’s a good running back,” Ruhl said. “He’s not good about staying out of trouble in Berrien County.”
Leshoure is charged with a felony, which means he could be facing jail time. He could also be facing a suspension from the NFL. Given all that, you’d think he’d be trying a little harder to make this go away as quickly and as painlessly as possible.
