He didn’t shy away from it in a court room either.
According to Jeff Bollier of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Jones pleaded no contest on Wednesday to a traffic citation for driving with a controlled substance in his system. Jones had admitted to smoking marijuana prior to the traffic stop.
Charges for speeding and operating a vehicle without a license were dismissed as part of his plea agreement. He had his license suspended for six months, has to pay over $1,000 in fine and court costs, and has to undergo an alcohol assessment.
He was pulled over for going 79 mph in a 55-mph zone just outside of Green Bay.
Jones appeared in 12 games with four starts after being selected in the fifth-round of last year’s draft. He rushed for 448 yards on 81 carries with four touchdowns.
