Last October 2016 Green Bay Packer Sam Shields was arrested for possession of marijuana after police went to his home to investigate delivery of marijuana through the U.S. Postal service. When the police arrived, Shields himself answered the door smoking a weed-laced cigar blunt (similar to a Backwoods cigar) and had another one in his pocket.
The complaint shows that Shields showed the agent a cupboard that had jars of pot and another cabinet with more pot in it. Along with the pot there was candy and muffins that contained edible marijuana and in the garage the agent found a box with no address label from Parker, Colorado.
After initialy pleading not guilty Shields changed his plea to no contest and will pay a $500 fine for marijuana possession. He could face up to six months in jail.
Signed by the Green Bay Packers in 2010 Shields suffered a concussion in 2016 and soon after was placed on injured reserve. In February of 2017 just a few short months after his marijuana arrest Shields was let go by the Packers.
