Marijuana arrests are one thing, but Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion took it up a notch last night.
According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Guion was arrested for felony possession of marijuana and a firearm, which will draw more attention than the weed itself.
Then again, it was apparently and allegedly quite a bit of weed.
According to captain Barry Warren of the Starke (Fla.) Police Department, marijuana charges in Florida are divided into less or more than 20 grams, and that Guion was packing “definitely” more than 20.
That’s not good news for a player who was hoping for a long-term contract extension from the Packers.
“We are aware of a serious matter involving Letroy Guion,” a Packers spokesman said, in the standard boilerplate comment for such things. “We have not yet spoken to Letroy and we will have no further comment.”
He’s the first Packers player arrested since November 2011 (Erik Walden, a domestic violence incident for which he received a deferred judgement).
And not to minimize the seriousness of any of the charges, but that’s actually a pretty solid run for any team.
