We knew this could be coming, but it’s official now: Leroy Hill has been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession in the State of Georgia. As a result, the NFL will most likely look at Hill in the same way they viewed Shaun Ellis who was arrested for marijuana last fall. Both of the arrests were the players’ first offense.
Ellis was recently fined $100,000 and suspended for one game. We can probably expect the same for Hill, unless they decide that the circumstances were significantly worse (passed out at a stop light in downtown Hotlanta). In other words, expect to see a lot of D.D. Lewis on September 13.
