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.
