Eagles' Patterson arrested

Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson was arrested last Saturday and charged with marijuana possession in Evesham, New Jersey, according to the Camden Courier Post.

The newspaper reported police found a vehicle on the side of the road with damage caused by a minor motor vehicle accident. They then smelled burning marijuana and found Patterson and the marijuana inside. Patterson admitted the marijuana was his.

Also inside the car was Patterson's 28-year-old brother, Tyrone, who had several outstanding warrants and resisted arrest.

Patterson, a former number one draft pick, was placed under arrest, taken into custody and charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams and released pending a court appearance.

His brother was charged with resisting arrest, posted bail and was released pending a court appearance.
