Packers' Aaron Jones reportedly arrested in October on marijuana-related charges

Packers' Aaron Jones reportedly arrested in October on marijuana-related charges

Head Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Monday he was aware of his arrest.

The cable sports network cites Wisconsin Circuit Court records stating Jones was allegedly driving a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system, speeding at 79 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone and operating a vehicle without a valid license. When troopers pulled Jones over, they noticed his eyes were red and bloodshot. When asked about it, Jones reportedly admitted he smoked before driving after he had eaten breakfast.

ESPN reports no drugs were found in Jones' possession, but police administered a sobriety test and took Jones to a local hospital for a blood test.

"I'm aware", of Aaron Jones' arrest after a traffic stop October 1, McCarthy says. "It's been a while since, I don't recall the date".

No further comments have been made as this is pending legal matter.

The press release states that consumer complaints led to the discovery of the issue, but no injuries have been reported. Trader Joe's said products with other "inspected" codes are not affected because they were prepared at different sites.

Jones was charged with operating with a restricted controlled substance, operating without a valid license and speeding.

Jones is now healing from a damaged MCL and is expected to miss the next several weeks of play for the Packers. Jones is expected to miss three to six weeks with a sprained MCL.

Jones is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing on February 1, 2018. The rookie started his first National Football League game in Week 5.

Jones has 370 yards rushing with three touchdowns through four games started in his 2017 rookie campaign.
