Pittsburgh Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LaGarrette Blount were pulled over on Wednesday in Ross Township, Pa. Police found marijuana in the car, leading to misdemeanor possession charges. Bell, the driver, also picked up a driving under the influence charge, but wasn’t quite sure why.
Bell was honest and cooperative with the police. Perhaps too honest, saying, “I didn’t know you could get a DUI for being high. I smoked two hours ago. I’m not high anymore. I’m perfectly fine. Why would I be getting high if I had to make it to my game?”
Both Bell and Blount played in Thursday night’s exhibition game with the Eagles, combining for 16 carries and 55 yards. Bell also got his bell rung on a huge hit by Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans.
