Not-guilty plea for Colts' Ahmad Bradshaw on Ohio pot charge
The Associated Press
EATON, Ohio (AP) An Indianapolis Colts running back has pleaded not guilty to a marijuana possession charge in western Ohio.
Preble County court officials say a Dayton attorney filed the plea Tuesday for Ahmad (AH'-mahd) Bradshaw.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says Bradshaw was stopped for a traffic violation on Interstate 70 this month. He was charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of a small amount of marijuana and with following too closely behind another vehicle in his Cadillac.
A court deputy clerk says the citations had been payable by fines without a court appearance. A pretrial hearing has been scheduled for Feb. 25.
The 28-year-old former New York Giants player had 725 total yards and eight touchdowns in an injury-shortened 2014 Colts season.
