Weapons charges stemming from Laurence Maroney’s January 17 arrest in St. Louis have been dropped after it was discovered that Maroney actually had the proper permit. However, KMOX in St. Louis reports that the Broncos running back still faces marijuana charges.
Maroney and four of his friends were found to be in possession of less than 35 grams of the drug, which is a misdemeanor. They were busted in their car outside a concert after officers smelled the tangy aroma.
If convicted, Maroney could face up to a year in prison. (Of course, he’s more likely to win the lottery than actually see time in the can.)
