Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety T.J. Ward was arrested in Tampa Wednesday morning for possession of marijuana.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department, Ward was arrested at 8:11 a.m. He was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia and $2,500 bond. As it was a felony charge, this indicates that in the state of Florida, more than 20 grams of marijuana had to be in his possession.
The news was first reported by the website JoeBucsFan.com.
A three-time Pro Bowler, Ward signed with the Bucs last season on a one-year deal worth $5 million, but likely won't be returning after mostly being used as a rotational player.
