A starting Green Bay Packers defensive lineman has been arrested on drug charges.
Defensive tackle Letroy Guion was arrested Tuesday night in Starke, Florida.
The officer who pulled over Guion for a traffic stop said he could smell marijuana.
After backup units arrived, the officer searched Guion’s truck and found a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and 357 grams of marijuana.
The officer said Guion became “extremely uncooperative and hostile.” The officer reported that Guion “kept coming towards the vehicle several times saying, ‘Hey man, my money is in there. Don’t let him take my money.'”
The officer found $190,028.81 in a black bag in the truck.
Guion’s also charged with possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
The Green Bay Packers said in a statement, “We are aware of a serious matter involving Letroy Guion.”
Guion signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Packers last March.
