Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount both arrested

bellblount AP

The Steelers’ top two running backs were arrested together today.

Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount, Pittsburgh’s first- and second-string running backs, were in a car together and stopped by Ross Township Police this afternoon. Detective Brian Kohlhepp of the Ross Police Department tells PFT that a motorcycle officer smelled marijuana smoke coming from the car and pulled it over. Police found a baggy containing about 20 grams of marijuana in the car.

Both Bell and Blount are expected to be charged with possession of marijuana. Bell is also expected to be charged with driving under the influence. An unidentified female in the car is also expected to be charged with possession of marijuana. According to police, all three people in the car admitted that the marijuana belonged to all of them.

The Steelers took Bell in the second round of last year’s draft, and he won the starting job as a rookie. He carried 244 times for 860 yards and eight touchdowns last year.

Blount signed with the Steelers this offseason after spending last year in New England, where he had 772 yards and seven touchdowns on 153 carries.

Bell and Blount could both now be subject to league discipline, but likely not until the case is resolved.

    Roger, end the MADNESS!

    You want to punish Bell for theDUI, undderstood. but to punish Blount for marijuana possession is ridiculous.

    LeGarrette Blunt

  5. bgsusteelers says: Aug 20, 2014 7:55 PM

    Oh joy! The good news is, the Steelers could put a fire hydrant at RB week 1 and still spank the Browns.

  6. ctiggs says: Aug 20, 2014 7:55 PM

    if your last name is blount you have to smoke.

  7. rationalfootballfan says: Aug 20, 2014 7:56 PM

    Oh boy. This isn’t good. If they’re both suspended our running game will be horrendous for the first few games. Dammit.

  8. ilovecostcobut says: Aug 20, 2014 7:56 PM

    Gee, I’m shocked. I didn’t see that coming.

    couple of road scholars there!

  10. madmarlogan says: Aug 20, 2014 7:57 PM

    What did Bell expect, he had a Blount in the car.

  11. rocketcrab says: Aug 20, 2014 7:57 PM

    Idiots.

  12. buccaneerbeezy says: Aug 20, 2014 7:57 PM

    They got caught smoking a Blount !?

  13. aceakking says: Aug 20, 2014 7:57 PM

    If Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount are arrested, Bill Leavy should also be arrested and charged for meddling with SB40.

  14. lks311 says: Aug 20, 2014 7:57 PM

    Where’s that guy who always talks about how great the Pittsburgh Steelers are?

    You mean bell and blunt right? Haha now lets see what excuses the steelers fans have to say after they want to kick josh gordon out for a year.

  21. bonnovi says: Aug 20, 2014 7:59 PM

    At least they’re getting in some good personal time off the field.

  23. p8riotdynastylives says: Aug 20, 2014 8:00 PM

    Shame on them both …as Pats fan more disappointed in Blount ..he stayed out of trouble in Foxboro . Thought he straightened out??? guess not….

  24. beerbudsnbevo says: Aug 20, 2014 8:00 PM

    Well… now the Browns may only lose by 13 week one.

  25. kobesnotmike23 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:00 PM

    If these children want to smoke can’t they do it in the comfort in their own home?

    They should know they won’t get caught if they are smart about it knowing how much of a joke NFLs drug testing is.

  26. shaggymarrs says: Aug 20, 2014 8:00 PM

    Hahaha I don’t know why but this is funny.

  27. sounddacharge17 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:00 PM

    Driving under the influence…that is a mistake, dont be stupid.

    smoking some pot after a hard days work? No worse than a trip the local watering hole.

    Get rid of the stigma and legalize IT!!

    The Steelers should appoint Bill Leavy as the judge so Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount can get away with their crimes.

  35. jjrs89 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:01 PM

    youd think one of them would be smart enough to claim the weed so they both didnt get charged?

  36. erock27 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:02 PM

    Start Dri archer as ur flex in fantasy week 1

    Bell got no bail but Blount was holding the blunt.

  41. theonezeroonelistdotnet says: Aug 20, 2014 8:03 PM

    you can purchase the LeCigarettes in France

  42. steelers4385 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:03 PM

    Big deal. Its pot. Some guys like randy moss play(ed) better with it. Just the media and NFL make a bigger deal out of it than it needs to be.

  43. 4thquartermagic says: Aug 20, 2014 8:03 PM

    Before people condemn these guys to hell, remember, it’s just weed.

  44. aceakking says: Aug 20, 2014 8:04 PM

    It’s OK. The Steelers don’t need Le’Veon Bell or LeGarrette Blount. They just need to make sure Bill Leavy is on board to win the next SB.

  45. shoe23 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:04 PM

    Where is the Steelers fan that was on another story on the Bengals saying these two were going to destroy the Bengals? They may be too high to find the stadium.

  46. rgiiiandxiii says: Aug 20, 2014 8:04 PM

    They don’t call him Blount for nothing.

  47. joemammy says: Aug 20, 2014 8:05 PM

    Where there’s smoke… there’s fired.

  48. cheffyglenn says: Aug 20, 2014 8:05 PM

    Wow how dumb can you be!! Why risk your career, life and others lives so you can have some fun smoking weed! Guess we will not be a great running team again this year! And to think Bell just received the Joe Green award! Plus this is right before the most important pre season game tomorrow!! I guess if they score low on big Ben’s no huddle hand signal test we will know what killed their brain cells!!!

  49. govtminion says: Aug 20, 2014 8:05 PM

    Who’s the guy who keeps posting in articles about “ever notice how this stuff never happens to the Steelers”?

    …Yeah.

    Come on guys, you get the oppourtunity of a lifetime and now your gonna blow it?

    damn feel bad for blount…was really a good citizen in new england maybe leveon bell influenced him

  52. officialgame says: Aug 20, 2014 8:06 PM

    Blount should change his name to Blunt.

  53. sportsfan18 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:06 PM

    WHY do all these millionaire athletes have to smoke weed out and about in their cars?

    Sit at home, or out back of their house and use this stuff.

    So many are either smoking it or have it in their possession in their cars.

    If they get stopped for a traffic violation and their weed is AT HOME, they are OK.

    Yeah, I know they have to get it, but that may be worked around too.

    All these guys that do this and get caught are dumb on multiple levels…

  54. alanburg says: Aug 20, 2014 8:07 PM

    Marijuana is no big deal but they did violate
    League policy and that is just selfish from a team
    Standpoint. No excuse, now left with
    3rd string way to kill a season

  55. zonex74 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:07 PM

    Bell shudda known that hangin out with a blunt would be an issue.

  56. mrone50 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:08 PM

    I wasn’t sure why Steelers’ fans were saying their back field would light it up this season. Now I get it

  57. flyinghighphil says: Aug 20, 2014 8:08 PM

    Once again big deal if they are smoking a joint. It’s a stupid law, there are far worse things they could be doing(such as drinking) . It’s a joke marijuana is ilegal look at the facts. Suspending players for making a smarter, safer choice is moronic.

  58. aceakking says: Aug 20, 2014 8:09 PM

    Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount are also being charged with bribing Bill Leavy.

  59. bengalguy says: Aug 20, 2014 8:09 PM

    Lol! TEAMWORK!!!!

    And in an unrelated story, the Steelers unveiled their new Cheech and Chong offense for 2014.

  62. jdrewsy says: Aug 20, 2014 8:09 PM

    Too late now, but they should have beat up the girl in the back seat and forgot about the weed.

    Penalties are far leaner!

  63. aljack88 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:09 PM

    They most likely won’t see any NFL punishment during this season. The NFL won’t issue anything until after the case is done in court. I’m sure the Rooney influence will get the case delayed for a few months a couple of times…..Unless the team makes the right move and imposes it’s own penalty (which they probably can’t because of some clause in the PBA).

  64. texansdan says: Aug 20, 2014 8:10 PM

    Ouch. First and second string at the same position. That is going to make things interesting during their suspension.

  65. bert1913 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:10 PM

    all they have to do is hire worthlessburger’s lawyer. he can work miracles.

  66. chargerdillon says: Aug 20, 2014 8:10 PM

    I love all the people here demonizing weed like it’s really a crime.

    These men have their bodies ABUSED day in and day out in practice and the game. You don’t think the subtle pain relieving effects of marijuana might not be so bad for what they endure.

    Rules are the rules, but rules change all the time.

  67. rl79111 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:10 PM

    Karma for Steeler’s fans vomiting all over here about there team being the most historic and best team in the NFL.

    There’s just no excuse. After all of the focus on it, there’s just no excuse. Toke in your mansion and play the odds on the NFL testing, don’t do it driving down the street, no sympathy for them at all.

  76. midwestmindset2014 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:16 PM

    Reality is far better than fiction! Regardless of how much these guys make, it’s pretty clear players are in favor of using jazz cigarettes to manage their pain. The NFL needs to figure out a real way of addressing the abuse these guys deal with and aspirin isn’t working.

  77. We, the Steelers, support the immediate relocation of the Bills, Raiders, Vikings, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Rams, Ravens, Chargers, Colts, and Cardinals. Their current cities are an embarrassment to the NFL and the game Pittsburgh invented. #6 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:16 PM

    Wow, this was clearly an elaborate set up by the league. They are willing to do everything to prevent us from leaving and starting our own league. We will not be stopped. Please, gentlemen, follow us. Walk with us and feel what it’s like to be beside trophy cases and engraved gold.

  78. TheWizard says: Aug 20, 2014 8:16 PM

    The last thing I want is a running back all mellowed out and chillin’.

    Great move by the Patriots to let him walk. That said, in the state of Mass the odor of marijuana is not precedent enough to have a car searched or in this case even result in a pull over.

  117. joe400e says: Aug 20, 2014 8:42 PM

    With four more states pending mmj legalization, that would make over half the NFL teams residing in states where mmj is legal. Goodell is quickly getting painted into a corner here.
    I wouldn’t be shocked to see the NFLPA okay an 18 game schedule for an elimination of marijuana suspensions soon.

  118. fleaman1381 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:42 PM

    This is stupid. I just don’t get how these guys can keep doing this. I’m all about legalizing weed, but most places it is illegal. And even in the places it is legal if the company you work for says it’s illegal then don’t smoke! Not worth losing that big salary.

  119. cccar1420 says: Aug 20, 2014 8:42 PM

    I’m a big steelers fan but I think they should be suspended for at least 4 games by the Steelers. The Steelers organization needs to let them know that they’re not going to put up with this behavior.

  123. drwbrsdmndsnxplntn says: Aug 20, 2014 8:45 PM

    To the guy who says the Steelers should start their own league,

    I could not agree more whole heartedly, may I reccomend it be named the “Senior NFL” or “NFL Old-Timers Circuit”? Honestly, it would be tough to apply a moniker more apropos for your new football league. And it would be great when the NFL retires the Steelers and uses that spot for a more important market like Los Angeles, Toronto, London, Columbus, Des Moines, or Hartford.

    The bottom line is they totally disrespected
    And let down the entire team and all the steeler fans.
    Tomlin will probably double the punishment
    Sent down from the commish. They broke rules and now
    there are consequences.

  131. We, the Steelers, support the immediate relocation of the Bills, Raiders, Vikings, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Rams, Ravens, Chargers, Colts, and Cardinals. Their current cities are an embarrassment to the NFL and the game Pittsburgh invented. #6 says: Aug 20, 2014 9:00 PM

    A lot of haters out right now. We get it, it’s tough at the bottom. It’s not easy at the top either. Carrying this shadow is heavy. Casting it over you is dooming, we know. You pray for manufactured events like this.

    In truth, it doesn’t matter. Next man up. We could start a running back off the streets tonight and see success, for that’s all we know. These attempts by the league to stop us will of course falter. Take the time to read a book and click our name for enlightenment.

    The Patriot Wa…..; oops sorry wrong team. Maybe the two of them can go in with Pouncey and get a package deal for an attorney. Better still, hire Roethlisberger’s army of lawyers and intimidate them to drop the charges, whether they’re guilty or not.

  142. thatstinks says: Aug 20, 2014 9:12 PM

    I’m baffled that I have to type this but it should be obvious that the reason they weren’t smoking at their crib was…wait for it ….They are in training camp . They are in a hotel type place with coaches sleeping there as well . I think it might even be a college . But yeah not very bright .

  143. cheffyglenn says: Aug 20, 2014 9:13 PM

    They both need to be traded now! We don’t need that kind of personality trait playing for the Steelers. Should have known they were like that. Idiotic fools can’t follow small rules don’t deserve the fame and money!! Guess it’s their lifestyle they choose though. I’m sure both will be asking for forgiveness and all that BS those types always give!! They sicken me now!!

    While it is only smoke…. regardless of how much your paid…. if the boss says you can’t smoke.. you can’t smoke.

    Everyone knows when they test for it. The only thing to do after that, is not get caught by the cops. Maybe finding a nice couch or chair. I hear bean bag hammocks are pretty cool too.

    Now their gonna receive a 4 game suspension or maybe worse for something that is not even a big deal. That stuffs legal in other states and probably will be nationwide in the next 10 years or so…. Get caught using pot is a bigger no-no then beating your GF unconscious apparently. Goodell will probably go overboard on this one too.

    NFL MUST decriminalize pot use! In fact, it should be available at all training tables. Each team’s trainer should seek out and purchase the finest weed available. Hey, eventually it will be this way all over the country. It’s great for pain control and brain relaxation. We have to get over this ridiculous notion that weed is dangerous. Alcohol is a FAR worse problem.

    Now I know why Belichick let Blount walk. I wondered why he let a talent like that go. He couldn’t trust him. And knew when to cut bait. Players who continue to sneak and use this stuff are just flat out stupid. If I was Goodell I’d suspend them both for the season. And kick them out of the NFL if they repeated it again.

  156. pittsburghdamned says: Aug 20, 2014 9:32 PM

Why do pro athletes who stand to make millions jeopardize their career for a couple hrs of intoxication??? The NFL won’t do anything but a slap on the wrist n back feed this problem.

  162. drewzducks says: Aug 20, 2014 9:40 PM

    If tomatoes were made illegal tomorrow, and Bell and Blount were caught eating tomatoes, would you consider them stupid? Would you get on the web and call them “jailbirds”? Weed shouldn’t be illegal, and they are not stupid. Cannabis is one of the safest substances known to man, and the illegal status is a crime. Bell and Blount aren’t stupid. They’re simply ignoring an unjust law. Were people stupid when they drank despite the prohibition laws in the 30’s? No… they were ignoring an unjust law.

    As the biggest Steelers fan, it pains me to say all of the following:

    These two are done. Santonio Holmes was SB MVP. He tested positive in the OFFseason and was immediately released. These idiots get busted the afternoon where they’re scheduled to travel to the most important preseason game the year (#3) and haven’t done crap? They’re about to find out just how (un)important they really are.

    That being said … How selfish can you be? There are 51 other guys (not including coaches, staff, etc.) who are working their butts off after two average seasons and finally having a potent offense and fast and crazy defense, giving their all to get back to the winning standard, and you pull some stupid stunt like drinking and driving, and having weed in your pocket while doing it? I hate to say they have to go…but they have to go. That selfishness can NOT be tolerated in our franchise.

    Tears to my eyes. I thought we were going to witness something special this year. Sad day in the ‘Nation!

  235. bucsorbust says: Aug 21, 2014 5:28 AM

    Like it or not, agree or not, marijuana is illegal in most places. Punishable, despite one’s personal thoughts on the law. If you don’t like it, it’s because you either smoke it yourself or want to, or are some weirdo liberal. All that said, smoking weed and driving around is not only illegal, but really stupid and irresponsible, just like driving drunk is. Blount even has a little girl. I wonder if he toots around high with her in the back seat. Until the league gets serious on illicit drugs, NFL players will use their money to buy up the weed, and continue to drive around town as a threat to law abiding citizens. Too bad they didn’t run the car off a bridge and into a ravine.

    This has much larger implications. Forget the fact that these guys know how to circumvent the NFL’s “random” drug testing. Forget the fact that Blount has worn out his welcome at every bus stop in his career. I’ve got that knucklehead Bell in my keeper league.

    Reefer maddness!

  248. holeinone09 says: Aug 21, 2014 8:19 AM

    Well, this sucks. The 2 primary backs make a stupid mistake, and it will affect the entire team. There will likely be at least a one game suspension for Bell, based on precedent. Good thing we have Ben on the team, and the incompetent Browns as the first opponent.

    I bet the Steelers take their own action to show their disappointment. In fact, not taking Bell to the Eagles game does that already. You won’t see the Steelers kissing their assess like the Ravens and Harbaugh did with Rice the wife beater, who only got a 2 game suspension and was coddled by the team during the entire process. Now that was a complete joke.

    First of all Bell and the Female admitted to the drugs being theirs and Blount was released form the scene. He was told to call for a ride. Bell and the female are the only ones being charged with the crime. That being said, with all the josh Gordon and Blackmon crap going on they should have been smarter and stayed home instead of out taking Burn rides. this isn’t going to sit well with the Owners, fans, coaches, or teammates. this impacts the entire season.

  250. mrpkg says: Aug 21, 2014 8:37 AM

    Like they did with Santonio Holmes, the Steelers will suspend both of them for one game.

    Got to do it, no matter how much it hurts.

  251. torethatbridgeout says: Aug 21, 2014 8:41 AM

    That Browns defense is no joke. Hardly a guaranteed win, especially if Gordon plays and the Steelers have no running game.

  252. thegenoatkinsdiet says: Aug 21, 2014 8:43 AM

    I told the Police Department that it was a bad idea to hire a Browns fan. But did they listen? Now look…

  253. enoughofthatalready says: Aug 21, 2014 8:43 AM

    As first time offenders, they will each be suspended by the NFL for 2 games in 2014 with Bell possibly getting an additional game because of the DUI.

  254. enoughofthatalready says: Aug 21, 2014 8:48 AM

    Maybe they should marry each other and enter into a drug program right away and have Tomlin proclaim how upstanding they are so that Goodell can be fooled into a lesser punishment. Oh, that’s right……..they do not play for the Ravens.

  255. wallyswfl says: Aug 21, 2014 8:58 AM

    We, the Steelers, support the immediate relocation of the Bills, Raiders, Vikings, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Rams, Ravens, Chargers, Colts, and Cardinals. Their current cities are an embarrassment to the NFL and the game Pittsburgh invented. #6 – LOL this is great this person is right in line with pftpoet man o man to funny what was the steelers record last year?

  256. rufustfireflyjr says: Aug 21, 2014 9:07 AM

    Forget the weed. They should be arrested, fined and suspended for being DUMB enough to smoke marijuana in a car out in public. Maybe folks are right; maybe smoking that stuff really does make you stupid.

  257. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 21, 2014 9:20 AM

    Suddenly so many Steeler fans suddenly conclude pot is no big deal and shouldn’t be punished even though they were just calling for a year long Gordon suspension because “he broke a league rule”.

    Hypocrites? Of course just following the team’s lead.

    Regardless, you take a kid from Skip Kelley’s Oregon teams you’re asking for trouble.

  258. enoughofthatalready says: Aug 21, 2014 9:33 AM

    I am certain that there are at least a dozen players on every team that smoke weed regularly. Most of them are just smart enough not to get caught doing it.

  259. enoughofthatalready says: Aug 21, 2014 9:36 AM

    Not only will they each be suspended for 2 games each, I am not sure that the Steelers will have roster exemptions for these bozos to keep replacements on their roster. Archer and Poole will not be able to carry the load. I guess the Steelers will have to employ a no-huddle passing attack for 2 games. Issac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer, where art thou?

  260. willyalistentothis says: Aug 21, 2014 9:38 AM

    Based on the Ray Rice suspension I suspect that these guys will only have to wash was the commissioner’s car.

    Here come all the Blount Jokes

  262. jtbsteeler says: Aug 21, 2014 9:51 AM

    Notice how there’s expectation that the Steelers FO will suspend these guys on their own. Contrast that with the Ravens who haven’t lifted a finger to discipline their arrested players this summer.

    No excuse for their stupidity. Suspend them as needed.

    The Steelers are becoming a joke under Mike Tomlin.

    The Steelers beat the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. You cried and complained. I got drunk and laughed at you.

  266. weepingjebus says: Aug 21, 2014 9:59 AM

    Another master stroke from a Belichick sleeper agent.

  267. enoughofthatalready says: Aug 21, 2014 10:10 AM

    For all the talk about how the Steelers FO should suspend them on their own and how the Ravens did not do the same to Rice………the CBA does not allow suspensions to come from both the league and the team. The team cannot come forward and suspend them until the league makes a ruling which will definitely be a suspension anyway. Based upon one of Goodell’s double standards, technically Bell and Blount will be suspended for 2 games without pay as it is a first time offense with Bell possibly getting another game tacked on for DUI but you never know with Goodell. I feel that their suspensions will not be simultaneous since they are essentially the first and second string RB for the team. The Steelers FO basically cannot do anything other than maybe keeping them away from practices which really isn’t a punishment to the players but a punishment to the team as a whole later on especially since they will miss regular season games.

    Well at least Blount didn’t repeat his Oregon Ducks incident….get out of the car and lay out the cop.

  280. gbpackerfansincebirth says: Aug 21, 2014 12:55 PM

    I’m surprised these two weren’t released and the cops given season tickets. How many other cities would arrest two starting players before the start of a football season? I say bravo officers, there are people in this world who put the law above a sport.

    REALLY? You have an opportunity to be a professional football player, to make a boatload of money, to play a significant role for a potentially contending team … and you risk it all for a lil weed?

    Although I don’t use or drink, I think it’s ridiculous that pot’s illegal. But it is. And you two are dimwits.

  286. gisellichek says: Aug 21, 2014 1:32 PM

    Mentoring…

    Blount “listen rook… it will be NFL (not for long) if you can’t twist a good doobie, lets take a ride and I’ll show you”

    Bell “thanks brother , we gonna dominate this season”

    Cop “this your weed”

    Blount “sure , ain’t we in Colorado?, what It’s illegal in here, awe damn”
