L. Wilson was arrested and charged with marijuana possession (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Linebacker Lawrence Wilson, a sixth-round pick for the Panthers and currently a practice squad player, was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and speeding.

According to the Salisbury Post, authorities said after stopping him for going 76 mph in a 65 mph zone, police detected a marijuana odor emanating from his vehicle. They then said an officer discovered 11 grams (.39 ounces) worth of pot in the car.

Wilson allegedly told officers he didn’t have his driver’s license with him but that he did have a work ID. Police asked Wilson to get out of the car, and once the officer placed one of Wilson’s hands in handcuffs, he “would not comply” with instructions. Additional backup was called, according to the police report.

According to police, Wilson began to cry and wonder what this arrest would do to his career.

O'kay people; He was arrested for weed & failure to comply.   Speeding is what got him stopped.  I live in NC and if your are polite, comply with insturction and don't do anything stupid, most of the cops here would give him a warning ticket for the speeding.   This guy tried to influence the cop by showing a Panthers ID in hopes of not getting a ticket and it got him busted.

As for worrying about his career, he didn't seem to worried about it till he got caught.   Tells me, he doesn't care about his career; he cares about doing what he wants to do with no consquences.

If he was doing 66 in a 65, it would still be speeding.  Dumb Dumb was doing 76 in a 65, which didn't get him arrested.  What got him arrested was doing Possession of marijuana and resisting arrest.  It would have been a lot better if he didn't have marijuana with him in the first place. No marijuana and all he would have had was a ticket for speeding.

If your gonna smoke and drive or even drive with pot in the car why go 1 mile over the speed limit. That is just like taunting the police and daring them to pull you over and then wondering what you did wrong. STUPID IS STUPID DOES...Thats what Mamma always said...
