Seriously, at least you WENT to the super bowl...
LAFAYETTE, La. - New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk was issued a misdemeanor summons last Friday for possession of marijuana. Capt. John Babin of the Lafayette Metro Narcotics Task Force confirmed the summons on Tuesday.
Faulk, a Louisiana native and former LSU star, was on his way to a suite in the Lafayette Cajundome to watch a performance by rapper Lil Wayne, when a routine search by a sheriff's deputy turned up four marijuana cigarettes, Babin said.
Everyone heading to the suites was searched, Babin said.
Faulk was not arrested or required to post bond.
"He was cited for simple possession, which is a misdemeanor," Babin said. "It's based on an amount possessed for personal use."
Faulk will be sent a letter notifying him of the court date when it is set.
"There was no trouble, Kevin was very cooperative," Babin said.
"We are aware of the report, but I don't have any additional comment at this time," Patriots spokesman Stacey James said.
