Cleveland Browns’ running back Kareem Hunt was pulled over on Tuesday by law enforcement officers for speeding when they noticed the smell of marijuana in the car he was driving, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter.
According to a Rocky River (Ohio) police report, police pulled Hunt over for speeding and upon noticing the smell of marijuana, Hunt was placed in the back of the police cruiser while a search was conducted. During the search, police found small amounts of marijuana in a backpack placed in the backseat of Hunt’s car, which was seized for evidence.
Hunt was only cited for the speeding violation.
The Browns, who signed Hunt back in February 2019, said they are “aware and looking into it.”
Hunt served an eight game suspension during the start of the 2019 season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Hunt was able to sign with the Browns when he was released by the Kansas City Chiefs in November 2018 when video from February 2018 surfaced of him kicking a woman in downtown Cleveland.
