It happened months ago, so I’m not even sure we can deem it a distraction at this point!
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison made headlines recently, after being charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana last month after a traffic stop and arrest from early September according to Packers News.
The complaint states trooper Bryan Ashenbrenner of the Wisconsin State Patrol smelled marijuana emanating from the car. Allison, who identified himself as a member of the Packers, denied smoking marijuana or having an illegal substance in the vehicle. He said the odor was left over from the night before when he was “with some guys that were smoking marijuana,” according to the narrative report.
But Ashenbrenner’s search of the vehicle produced three Backwoods cigars on the front passenger seat, and two of them were filled with a “green leafy material” that tested positive for THC.
Allison was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana and taken to the Manitowoc County Jail, where he declined to answer further questions. He was issued a citation for speeding and posted the $100 bond.
Allison was clocked at 81 mph on a stretch of highway with a posted speed limit of 70 mph, and once he was pulled over, may have tried to lie about the marijuana.
