Browns WR Antonio Callaway cited for marijuana possession, driving with suspended license
After a checkered past with the Florida Gators, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway has already found himself in some deep water.
According to Tony Grossi of ESPN, Callaway was cited for possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license.
According to the police incident report obtained by ESPN Cleveland, Callaway was driving his vehicle and was stopped at 2:59 a.m. on Aug. 5 when officer Eric Schubert observed him failing to yield to oncoming traffic while turning onto Howe Road.
Callaway’s driver’s license was found to be suspended. Schubert also found “a small amount” of marijuana under the driver’s seat, per the report.
According to Deputy Chief John Janowski, the amount of marijuana was small enough to be regarded as a minor misdemeanor under Ohio law.
Callaway was continually getting into trouble at Florida and failed a drug test at the NFL combine made him fall to the 4th round. With the failed drug test Callaway also entered the league’s substance abuse program which means he is tested more throughout the year and the first failed test can result in a suspension.
The Browns ended up trading away Corey Coleman on Monday, and it’s unclear if they knew about this incident before they traded him away.
Hue Jackson was asked about the situation and said he is obviously disappointed with the news that is coming out but will need to get more details on the situation before making a statement.
