Browns’ Kareem Hunt not cited for marijuana found in car
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt was stopped for speeding earlier this week but was not cited for the marijuana that was found in the car. An incident report obtained by 92.3 The Fan revealed Hunt was pulled off on Insterstate 90 on Tuesday afternoon for speeding.
The officers detected an odor of marijuana coming from inside the car. When the officers searched the car, they found small amounts of marijuana in three different locations of a backpack. The officers took the marijuana for evidence but didn’t cite him for the drugs. They did cite him for speeding.
The Browns said they are aware of the situation but are gathering more information. The league office hasn’t responded to any messages seeking comments.
Hunt missed the first eight games of the season because of a suspension for violating the personal conduct policy. Just because Hunt wasn’t charged doesn’t mean the NFL can’t suspend him. Hunt is set to be a restricted free agent. But he did say after the 2019 season that he would like to finish his career with the Browns.
“Ain’t no place like home, and this is home for me, so I’d love to be in my hometown playing for a long time, maybe finish my career,’’ Hunt said Friday, via Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com. “That would be something special. You never know. I’m just excited to do whatever it takes. They’re going to get a ballplayer.”
This latest incident could have an impact on the Browns interest in bringing him back, or any other team wanting to sign him in free agency.
