Rams running back Tre Mason’s team will be playing its home games near Hollywood, California in 2016, but Mason may be held out of some after being arrested in Hollywood, Florida on Saturday.
Mason has been charged with resisting arrest, marijuana possession, reckless driving and failure to register a motor vehicle after being pulled over on Saturday afternoon. Per a Broward County police report, via Frank Guzman of WSVN, officers observed Mason going 75 mph. in a 35 mph. zone and pulled him over after a short pursuit. Mason allegedly refused requests to provide his license or name, refused to get out of the car when police told him he would be arrested and was eventually removed after use of a Taser.
Officers found 12 grams of marijuana in the vehicle and took Mason into custody. They also took him to the hospital for medical clearance.
Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports that the Rams are “still gathering information” about what happened.
Mason, a 2014 third-round pick, is heading into his third season with the Rams.
