JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars wide receiver Reggie Williams was served a notice to appear in court after police allegedly found a small amount of marijuana in his car during a routine traffic stop.
The former University of Washington star is charged with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana, a misdemeanor. But rather than being taken to jail, he was served a notice to appear in court.
Williams, the team's first-round draft pick in 2004, was stopped Monday night for three traffic infractions, according to police documents.
The officer allegedly smelled marijuana and asked to search the car after Williams stepped out to sign the traffic citations. After Williams consented, police allegedly found two marijuana cigarettes under the driver's seat and a small bag of loose marijuana in the center console.
Williams was also cited for running a red light, turning left from a center lane and unknowingly driving on a suspended or revoked license.
Williams was the Jaguars' third-leading receiver this year, catching 35 passes for 445 yards.
