Mikel Leshoure To Be Arraigned On Second Offense Marijuana Possession

For the second time this offseason, a Detroit Lions player entering his second year in the league is in trouble with the law over possession of marijuana. Back in January, offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath was arrested for possession of marijuana, and last month, running back Mikel Leshoure was cited for second offense possession of marijuana. The story was first reported by ESPN 96.1. Here are more details from WXYZ:

The Lions released the following statement on this news (via Dave Birkett): "We are aware of the reports. We are gathering more information and have no further comment at this time."

Just as with the Culbreath case, this is really a minor issue in the grand scheme of things. It's never good to see a Lions player in legal trouble, but possession of marijuana isn't exactly something to be overly concerned about in my mind.

UPDATE: More details are out on both the first and second times Leshoure was charged with possession of marijuana.
