Packers nose tackle Letroy Guion arrested on felony drug charges
Green Bay Packers nose tackle Letroy Guion was arrested in Starke, Fla., and charged with felony possession of marijuana and a gun, according to police.
Guion had $190,028 in his possession, a semi-automatic nine millimeter firearm and 357 grams of marijuana.
"That gun was recently, legally purchased by Letroy, unfired and no ammunition," agent Seth Katz told National Football Post in a telephone interview. "Letroy has been cashing a number of his paychecks and was in Florida providing financial assistant to his family, and there's evidence to support that.
"Letroy is a good guy, he loves his family. He was down in Florida to take care of his mother, who's sick. There's information that will come out that will offer some explanation to some of what's been recently reported."
Katz had no comment on the possesion allegations.
According to police, Guion was "extremely uncooperative and hostile."
Guion had 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks last season.
He was playing under a one-year, $985,000 contract.
“We are aware of a serious matter involving Letroy Guion," the Packers said in a statement. "We have not yet spoken to Letroy and we will have no further comment.”
