A dismissed possession of marijuana charge in Harrison County may prove costly for Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Benny Snell.
As first reported by the Harrison News-Herald, Snell was pulled over for speeding on U.S. 250 near Tappan Lake on Aug. 30. He was clocked driving 68 miles per hour in 55 mph zone.
When a Harrison County deputy approached Snell’s vehicle, the deputy reported he could smell marijuana.
Snell admitted that he had smoked marijuana 20 minutes before being pulled over. He was in possession of 2.76 grams of marijuana — and had a legally registered, unloaded glock 9 hand gun in the car.
Snell had to pay a fine for speeding, but the drug possession charge was dropped due to the small amount. Snell could be facing a fine and or suspension by the league, but as far as Harrison County officials are concerned, Snell’s case is all but wrapped up.
