RB Bradshaw pleads no contest to pot charge


The Sports Xchange

Veteran NFL running back Ahmad Bradshaw has pleaded no contest and paid a fine to settle a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession.

Court documents at Eaton (Ohio) Municipal Court on Monday showed that Bradshaw paid $351 in fines and costs under a plea agreement. His Ohio driving privileges were suspended for six months. A second minor misdemeanor, a traffic charge, was dismissed.

Bradshaw was stopped Feb. 5 on Interstate 70 in western Ohio for following too closely behind another vehicle.

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

Bradshaw, 29, is a free agent after playing two injury-plagued seasons for the Indianapolis Colts. A neck injury ended his season after three games in 2013, and he suffered a broken leg in the 11th game last season. In 2014, he finished with 425 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Bradshaw played for two Super Bowl championship teams with the New York Giants. He had two 1,000-yard rushing seasons with the Giants.
