Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was due to be arraigned on charges of marijuana possession in Berrien County court on Monday, according to multiple reports out of Detroit.
The arrest for possession of marijuana took place on March 12 and would reportedly be Leshoure's second offense in the view of the NFL's substance-abuse guidelines.
Under the terms of the NFL drug policy, Leshoure could be subject to fine or suspension.
Leshoure has been working out in Detroit, recovering from a season-ending Achilles injury suffered in his rookie training camp. He was drafted 57th overall in 2010.
With Jahvid Best (concussion) far from a sure thing in 2012 after missing 10 games last season, the Lions might be forced to consider adding another running back. The team re-signed veteran Kevin Smith in March.
The Lions have traded up to get a running back several times in recent years, including moving up to select Kevin Jones, Smith, Best and Leshoure.
