Jaelen Strong Marijuana Arrest: Video Shows Texans WR Stores His Weed in His Crotch
Here’s a pro tip for you: if you’re going to drive around town with marijuana in your possession, you’d better make damn sure you obey all traffic laws.
Texans rookie wide receiver Jaelen Strong? He did not make sure to obey all the traffic laws.
Strong was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Sunday for marijuana possession. He and another man were passengers in a black Maserati driven by Packers rookie cornerback Damarious Randall when the cops pulled the car over for not having a visible license plate. During the stop, the cops said they could smell weed. They asked the men in the vehicle if they had marijuana, but all three said no. So the cops gave them two choices: own up to it, or let the dogs find it.
Strong then admitted that he had three joints in a box of Backwoods Honey Berry Wild ‘n Mild cigars…which was in his crotch.
Fortunately, the cops wear body cameras in Scottsdale and the folks at TMZ obtained the footage, so now we get to watch the entire arrest:
This will be Strong’s first drug violation since joining the league, so the punishment shouldn’t be too severe. He’ll just have to enter the league’s treatment program.
As for the Texans, they issued a statement saying they are “disappointed in the choices Jaelen made to put himself in this situation.”
Don’t do drugs, kids.
