Johnny Culbreath Arrested For Possession Of Marijuana

Detroit Lions offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath was arrested on Monday, according to The Times and Democrat. Culbreath's arrest stemmed from a charge of simple possession of marijuana after officers were called to a hotel where he was staying in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Here are the details of the arrest, as summarized by Pro Football Talk:

According to the report, Culbreath was staying at the Country Inn and Suites, where a hotel clerk called the police to report that a guest was using marijuana. Surveillance videos had shown Culbreath putting something in a hallway drawer, and when the police asked him what he put in there, he answered, "two blunts." Police then found what they described as "a small plastic bag with plant material" in the table.

Culbreath, who declined to comment about the arrest when contacted on Tuesday, paid a fine of $412 on Monday following the arrest. According to the report, the paying of the fine closed the case.

Culbreath was selected in the seventh round of last year's NFL Draft but didn't appear in a single game for the Lions in 2011. He was placed on injured reserve prior to the start of the season with a medical condition that was never disclosed.
