Texans WR Jaelen Strong arrested for marijuana possession

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) _ Police say Houston Texans wide receiver Jaelen Strong has been arrested for marijuana possession in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale.

A Scottsdale police spokesman say the former Arizona State standout was taken into custody late Sunday and booked into the Scottsdale City Jail. He was later released.

Police say Strong was a passenger in a Maserati that was stopped just before midnight when officers noticed the luxury car didn’t have a visible license plate.

Officers say they detected the strong odor of marijuana coming from the inside of the vehicle.

They say Strong admitted he was possession of some marijuana and didn’t have a medical marijuana card.

Police say Strong gave officers a cigar package containing three marijuana cigarettes.

Strong was a third-round draft pick of the Texans last year.
