The whole lockout thing is now annoying.
Maroney Faces Marijuana Charges
Pro Football TalkIn January, free agent running back Laurence Maroney was arrested on weapons charges in St. Louis. Now prosecutors say Maroney has a conceal carry permit, and no Missouri gun laws were violated. But that doesn’t mean Maroney is off the hook.
Instead, KMOX reports, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office has charged Maroney and four other men with one count each of possessing under 35 grams of marijuana in connection with the January incident.
The five men were arrested on January 17, after officers smelled marijuana coming from the two cars they were driving around Chaifetz Arena before a concert.
Maroney’s attorney, Scott Rosenblum, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Maroney plans to plead not guilty and that it was “unfortunate he was charged under the circumstances.”
The Patriots’ 2006 first-round draft pick, Maroney played the 2010 season for the Broncos and totaled just 36 carries for 74 yards. The Broncos aren’t expected to bring him back in 2011, and given his combination of poor on-field performance and off-field trouble, it’s hard to see why any other team would want to sign him either.
Maroney never seemed to have the drive to fix his weaknesses, maybe he's too busy having an off-the-field life that usually doesn't help a player progress...Even if he is innocent, he shouldn't be getting involved in situations like these..
