Blunt Ride = Community Service For Patriots Running Back
After being caught blunt riding back in August, LeGarrette Blount has been sentenced by District Judge Richard Opiela to serve 50 hours of community service at a "charitable youth organization, preferably inner city." Blount, who has recently left the Pittsburg Steelers and joined the New England Patriots, came to an agreement with prosecutors yesterday that will allow him to have his marijuana charge dropped after the completion of his community service.
The NFL Players Association has said that they will most likely wait for the outcome of Blount's sentence to decide whether they will discipline him or not. The 27-year-old has until February 4th to complete his community service. Mercedes Dollson, 21, of California was also in the car with Blount and Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, 22, was driving. Dollson was charged with possession and also offered a community service plea deal.
