Antwaun Woods arrested for marijuana possession and other charges

Cowboys defensive tackle Antwaun Woods will miss Thursday night’s game with a knee injury.  He eventually may be missing a game or more due to an incident from Tuesday.

Woods was arrested Tuesday and charged with possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL. He also was cited with possession of paraphernalia.

The possession charges alleges that he had more than two ounces but fewer than four ounces. That’s a misdemeanor under Texas law, but the tampering charge apparently lands in the felony category.

Woods separately will face potential punishment from the league, and players who are found legally responsible for marijuana possession always receive a suspension.

Woods, undrafted in 2016, has started eight games this season.

  1. Part of me says hey its just weed leave the guy alone. The other part of me says if weed is illegal in your state you should not be stupid and put millions of dollars in jeopardy. So I will just say “hey leave the stupid guy alone”

  2. He should’ve waited until he got up here to Illinois. We don’t prosecute for that anymore.

  3. I 100% guarantee that there will be a day where players who are allowed to smoke weed, and as a result lose their career, wealth, etc, try to sue the NFL for “not doing enough to prevent players from ruining their own lives by using illegal or legal drugs”.
    That WILL happen. Lawyers will argue that the NFL has some farcical “duty” to protect employees (aka players) from their own idiotic decisions.
    If players want to use illegal drugs, gamble, commit crimes, etc then the PLAYERS must suffer the consequences of their own decisions.
    The employer, aka the NFL, has NO duty whatsoever in preventing players from making stupid life decisions.
    The NFLPA on the other hand, DOES have this duty, but players refuse to sue their own union.
    IMO if players make stupid life choices during their tenure as an NFL player, and their post-NFL life is affected by those decisions, well then the players should reap what they sowed.
    Players who major in cultural studies, then smoke weed and have multiple kids with multiple women while playing the the NFL, DESERVE to be broke and in heavy debt in their post-NFL life!
    Under NO circumstances should the NFL be liable for decisions made by the player that a reasonable person could foresee would affect the post-NFL life of that player.

  4. Police harassed this man and the kidnapped him just for driving around with some herbs. It’s an evil world we live in.

    it was the tampering part that makes it worse. Probably tried to eat/swallow it to destroy evidence.

    If he tried to eat 3-4 oz. then he is a ‘nother level of stupid.

  6. Same dude was sent home a few weeks ago for being late…

    Belichick, Parcells, Jimmy Johnson would’ve cut him yesterday. He’ll probably start next week for Garrett.

  7. Stupid is as stupid does. Imagine this, a really good player on my favorite team drove 150 miles apparently to score, then gets busted on his return trip, going 81 MPH in a construction zone. How can anyone have any sympathy for these guys. Neither I, nor anyone I know would ever do something so stupid. Please.

  8. Wow, really Frisco police? …hometown cops really going to arrest a cowboy? Must’ve been a Eagle’s fan

    Texas cops right now with marijuana are trying to cash in now because they know legalization is coming. (words for a Texas lawyer)

  9. They’ll drop the tampering. He’ll plea to a misdemeanor. Texas is always last to recognize Freedom.

  10. Do the Cowboys have something in their organizational charter that all D-linemen have to get into legal trouble during their contract term?

  11. you guys don’t prosecute for anything anymore lol.

  12. There’s a new law in California that legalized weed and removes old misdemeanor marijuana convictions from your record. Old Felony marijuana convictions are reduced to misdemeanors. You can carry up to an oz on you anytime and grow up to six plants at home legally. The rest of the world needs to catch up. If alcohol and tobacco which kills millions of people every year, is legal , then marijuana which is alot safer and doesn’t kill you and has medicinal uses, should never have been illegal in the first place. It all has to do with alcohol and tobacco companies working with the government and not wanting marijuana to be legalized because they’re afraid of the competition that will lead to more marijuana use and less alcohol and tobacco sales which hurts their pockets. It’s an evil world controlled by money hungry politicians that want to tax you to death and kill you with alcohol and tobacco.

    They’ll never decriminalize or legalize here in TX

    All the little towns & counties rely on the revenue from fines & confiscations

    I think we’ll see some cities decriminalize at their level but basically just the bigger cities & only w/in the city limits proper

    I guess that depends on your definition of Freedom. They have a had a “shall issue” concealed carry law since 1995. Or were you referring to the freedom to get high?

    Interesting that politicians want to kill me with alcohol and tobacco. I had always assumed that consumption of these products was voluntary, as is the consumption of marijuana.

  16. In Texas large amounts are misdemeanors. If you do anything but admit to having marijuana if a cop asks you, it is a felony. Just tell the cops you have the pot, take your ticket and go home.

  17. it will never be legal everywhere, too many towns/cities benefit from these arrests. Not to mention all the “for profit” prisons that rely on these people to fill their cells.

    America, last in education and healthcare, 1st in locking you up. Let Freedom ring?

  18. Despite being from a country where weed is legal, I have no sympathy for this idiiot. How stupid do you have to be to risk your career for weed? At the very least, just enjoy it at home. Let you your drug dealer drop it off and have it in the comfort of your own home.

    What non-dealer drives around with 3 oz of weed
    ————————
    Depends on whether he intended to smoke it or make brownies. Takes a lot more to make brownies. Just sayin..

  20. “What non-dealer drives around with 3 oz of weed?”

    Busy people who don’t have time to drive to a dealer or in a state where legal to a dispensary every week. I know several people in RI (medical) and MA (medical and recreational) who always buy 2 – 4 oz at a time to save the hassle of constantly having to buy more.

  21. Why is the Pats Patrick Chung allowed to play while being indicted with felony cocaine possession?

    ==========================================
    State trooper pulled over driving from Dallas to Houston because I didn’t have front license plate. Officer saw my Eagles hat and asked if I was a real Eagles fan or just wearing the hat. Told him I’m a real fan cause I grew up there. To my surprise, he said he grew up in Philly burbs too. No ticket!!!
