Aaron Jones facing marijuana charge following October traffic stop

Aaron Jones facing marijuana charge following October traffic stop

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel first reported news of the incident Monday.

According to the State Patrol's report, Jones was clocked at between 77 and 79 miles per hour in an area of Hwy.

Online court records show that on November 15 Jones pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor traffic charges for speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance. The incident report said the officer observed Jones having bloodshot eyes, and that Jones admitted he smoked after breakfast. No drugs were found in Jones' possession.

Jones was arrested October 1 after he was pulled over for allegedly speeding along a highway in Wisconsin.

Another trooper arrived on the scene, and Jones was given a sobriety test.

On Twitter, Michael Cohen quoted head coach Mike McCarthy saying Jones, "made a mistake" and declining to comment further since it is a pending legal issue. "It's been awhile. I don't recall the date".

In eight games, Jones has rushed for 370 yards and three touchdowns.

Jones is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing on February 1, 2018. He made his first extended appearance in the backfield in the game immediately before his arrest, with 13 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown in the September 28 win over the Bears.

Jones is out for month after suffering a sprained MCL in Week 10. Since the NFL normally doesn't get involved in substance-abuse cases until they are resolved, Jones likely won't face any punishment from the league until next season.
