Letroy Guion didn’t help his case in free agency by getting busted a month before the market opened with a bunch of weed, and a gun and a pile of cash in his car.
But now, the charges against him are gone, and his pursuit of a new contract can begin.
According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, Guion’s criminal case was closed after he reached a plea deal Tuesday that included a $5,000 fine plus court costs. Since he had no prior record, the charges were dismissed without adjudication of guilt.
“Hopefully he learned from his mistake and can continue his NFL career,” captain Barry K. Warren, public information officer for the Starke, Florida, police department said.
Guion was pulled over on Feb. 3 for erratic driving, and cops found a substantial quantity of marijuana, an unloaded gun and $190,028.81 in cash in his truck.
There’s still a civil forfeiture case pending, so he can get his money back.
But now that his record is clear, he may have another way to earn some of it back.
The Packers have shown some interest in bringing him back, but his plea deal could cause others to get into the mix.
