Lions rookie busted for marijuana possession
Detroit Lions rookie offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath was arrested Monday at an Orangeburg, S.C., motel and charged with simple possession of marijuana.
Culbreath paid a $412 fine before a county judge later that day to bring a conclusion to the case, according to the Times and Democrat. The Lions did not comment on the matter and Culbreath also declined comment.
He was busted by police when a clerk at the Country Inn and Suites called to report a suspicion of marijuana smoke in one of the rooms. When police investigated, they saw Culbreath place two blunts in the drawer of a hallway desk.
Culbreath, a South Carolina State product, was on injured reserve last season.
