Packers defensive lineman Datone Jones wasted no time in trying to start enjoying his offseason.
According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Jones was arrested for marijuana possession just a couple hours after the Packers’ team plane landed following their season-ending loss to the Seahawks in Seattle.
The Green Bay Police Department says that Jones “became emotionally upset, and told officers he was the first-round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers.”
It’s to the credit of the Green Bay Police that Jones wasn’t able to employ the “Do you know who I am?” card successfully. It’s odd, though, that news of Jones’s arrest never became public until after the NFL announced that he had been suspended for the first game of the 2015 season.
Jones resolved the legal matter by paying an $880 fine. The suspension could cost him $122,765.
