PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Le’Veon Bell appeared in court last week in connection with a 2014 DUI arrest. Now, it appears he will face the court of the NFL.
According to an ESPN report, Bell will likely be suspended for the first two games of the upcoming season.
Bell was arrested on Aug. 20 after a motorcycle officer in Ross Township smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Last week, Bell entered an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, received 15 months of probation and a 60-day license suspension.
Defense attorney Robert Del Greco said his client already apologized to his teammates and the fans and has already started the working on the terms of the ARD program.
According to Ross Township Police, Officer Sean Stafiej pulled the car over in the parking lot of Pool City along McKnight Road.
Police say Bell was driving, then-teammate LeGarrette Blount was in the front passenger seat and an unidentified female was in the back seat of the vehicle.
Investigators say Officer Stafiej also found a Ziploc-style bag containing about 20 grams of marijuana on the console.
Ross Township Police say the three “admitted to collectively possessing the bag of marijuana.”
