Packers running back Aaron Jones arrested last month for speeding, under the influence of marijuana

ASHWAUBENON, WIs. - Packers' running back Aaron Jones was arrested on multiple charges on October 1st, including being in possession of marijuana and speeding, and while he has apologized for his "mistake," he has pleaded not guilty.

"I owe an apology to the Packers, my teammates, my family, the community of Green Bay and El Pas,o and it won't happen again, and I'm taking the right steps and I'm learning from my mistake," Jones said on Monday.

Jones was pulled over on October 1st by a state trooper in Ashwaubenon for going 79 mph in a 55 mph zone.

As the state trooper walked to Jones' car, he smelled marijuana and noticed that the running back's eyes were bloodshot.

He admitted to the trooper that he had smoked marijuana that morning. There were no drugs or paraphernalia found in his car.

During the sobriety test, Jones used his arms for balance while walking.

He was taken to St. Vicent Hospital and was later released from custody when Packers' cornerback Donatello Brown picked him up and took him home.

The NFL waits until a court ruling is made before punishing players for drug-related charges.

Jones was also arrested in 2016 in El Paso, Texas for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol after he swerved out of a lane while driving. A breathalyzer test showed that Jones was over the legal limit, but the charge was dropped after he completed a diversion program.
