NFL Player J’Marcus Webb Arrested for Marijuana Possession, Charges Dropped

 by lucy

Chicago Bears offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb was arrested this weekend in Pulaski County, IL after police discovered marijuana in his vehicle.

The NFL player was pulled over for speeding.  Police then discovered that he had less than 2.5 grams of marijuana in his car.

Webb was charged with cannabis possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, and speeding.

He was able to post $500 bond and was released.

Pulaski County State’s Attorney Grayson Gile is now saying that Webb will not face any charges, however. Gile told the Southern Illinoisan that the case lends itself to a “fair and equitable” resolution.

Bears spokesman Mike Corbo said the franchise was aware of the matter and was seeking specifics about it. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league would look into it.

      Not the league's concern, but the police's. It doesn't sound like the NFL is going to take action against him… hopefully. Especially since the charges are being dropped.

    I'm not sure how it works but if mj is decrim in il or chicago then the cop who writes the tix is in the wrong. Shouldn't just be loading on charges -most with lawyers will get off from anyways. Give the speeding ticket, maybe a warning about how much herb you can legally carry or once they see its less than offensable amount-just give speeding ticket and let him be on his way.

    Great that he's not getting charged, never should have been arrested in the first place for a few joints worth. Wonder what the "fair and equitable resolution" is? I guess its outing him to his employer. Everybody else that gets caught with weed in Illinois faces charges.
