Ahmad Bradshaw Pleads No Contest to Pot Charge

Veteran NFL running back Ahmad Bradshaw pleaded no contest and paid a fine to settle a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession, the Indy Star reports.

According to court documents at Eaton Municipal Court, Bradshaw paid $351 in fines and cost under a plea agreement. His driving privileges in Ohio were also suspended for six months. A second minor misdemeanor, a traffic charge, was dismissed.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told The Associated Press that Bradshaw’s case will be reviewed under the league’s policies. Any potential punishment would depend on his status in the league’s drug program.

The 29-year-old Super Bowl champion and free agent scored eight touchdowns with 725 total yards in 10 games when playing for the Indianapolis Colts in 2014. A season-ending fractured fibula cut his time with the team short.

Initially, Bradshaw pleaded not guilty to the charges from a Feb. 5 traffic stop in western Ohio. Ohio State Police sent several substances from the car for testing, but found not illegal other than a small amount of marijuana.

An attorney for Bradshaw confirmed the court records but declined further comment on Monday.
