ELKO, Ga. — Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Montravius Adams was arrested in Georgia this week and charged with marijuana and driving offenses.
He was stopped just after 6 p.m. Tuesday on suspicion of driving with a suspended registration and no insurance, according to a Houston County Sheriff's Office report. It was not immediately clear why police had such suspicions.
An officer smelled marijuana, which was found in a search of the car, the report said.
Adams faces misdemeanor charges of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, driving with a suspended registration and driving without insurance. He was released from the Houston County Detention Center on $2,964 bond.
The Packers released a statement saying they are aware of what happened but will not comment further because it is an "ongoing legal matter."
Adams, 24, was third-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft out of Auburn. He had 19 tackles last year while playing in 14 games and making two starts. He finished with 26 tackles and a sack in 2018 while playing 16 games and making one start.
