Former Cleveland offensive lineman, Greg Robinson, was taken in and arrested by the Drug Enforcement Administration in Texas, El Paso. He was found with a stash of 71kgs of weed in his car during a vehicle checkpoint.
The DEA said they could be charging Robinson with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, which the judge will have to decide on after further investigation and the correct legal proceedings are followed.
The DEA has stated that, due to federal law, the weight and pure volume of Greg’s stash makes it a serious offence. The all-star has also said he agrees the volume was rather high, but he had no intention of selling or distributing the plant. This amount was in his possession for personal consumption during his off season which includes many hours of training and recovery.
Although these statements were presented against Greg, he allegedly rented the vehicle in LA late Sunday morning and arranged a third person to drive him and some friends to Louisiana. Greg also asked the third person/Uber driver to take the fall for the weed and he’d pay him later. The refused and told Robinson he wouldn’t have agreed to drive him knowing they were transporting weed.
Both suspects are being held without bail and are pending a court appearance before a US Magistrate. If convicted, Robinson could face up to 20 years in prison.
