File this under the “duh” category.
At the time that the arrest of Florida State cornerback Greg Reid began making headlines yesterday morning, there were (not surprisingly) scarce details.
But, according to a police report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, among others, Reid denied marijuana possession when asked about an alleged joint in his car by a Georgia officer, J.W. Kinsey. Reid was pulled over Tuesday night for a possible window tint violation. He was initially charged with driving with a suspended license, possession of marijuana and a seatbelt violation.
From the Sentinel:
As is procedure following arrests in which a driver is alone in his or her vehicle, Reid’s 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis was impounded before being released to a family acquaintance of Reid’s. During an inventory of the vehicle, Kinsey said he noticed the “strong odor of air freshener mixed with a burnt Marijuana smell.”
Inside a brown paper bag on the front passenger seat was “unrolled, loose cigar tobacco still holding the round shape of a cigar,” Kinsey said in the report.
Kinsey also said he noticed a clear zip-lock bag containing a green, leafy substance that he suspected was marijuana. Upon later testing of the bag’s contents, the substance tested positive for marijuana, Kinsey said in the report.
Any punishment Reid may face has not been announced publicly yet.
