Packers running back arrested, before he made his first start

20 November 2017

Online court records show that on November 15 Jones pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor traffic charges for speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance. Those citations are: Operate with Restricted Controlled Substance, Speeding in a 55 miles per hour zone, and Operating without a Valid License. When troopers pulled Jones over, they noticed his eyes were red and bloodshot. Jones told Larson he had woken up three hours earlier and smoked marijuana after eating breakfast.

Jones has entered not guilty pleas in the case.

Do the Packers talk to their players about this stuff?

"I spoke to Aaron after the incident", McCarthy said Monday.

No further comments have been made as this is pending legal matter.

Online court records show Jones was issued three traffic citations on October 2 in Brown County.

ESPN reports no drugs were found in Jones' possession, but police administered a sobriety test and took Jones to a local hospital for a blood test.

Jones is expected to be out of the Packers line up for three-to-six weeks after suffering a knee injury during the Chicago Bears game. The final pre-trial hearing is scheduled for February.

The rookie standout has 370 yards in 70 carries.

Pending the results of the legal process, Jones could be punished by the National Football League to start the 2018 season.
