Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Antwaun Woods was arrested last week in Frisco, Texas. He was initially pulled over for speeding — police say he was going 77 miles per hour in a 60 MPH zone — but when officers smelled marijuana in the car, it changed the situation.

‘You’ve got too much marijuana’

Recreational marijuana use is still illegal in Texas. Via TMZ, which viewed the police video of the December 3 stop, cops noted several times that Woods had a lot of weed.

Police found two mason jars and a small gold cylinder container, all of them full of weed, in Woods’ SUV, and also several pieces of drug paraphernalia. Police said Woods stuffed a marijuana cigarette into a half-full water bottle during the stop.

In the video an officer tells the 26-year-old, “So listen: you’ve got too much marijuana, OK?”

As the officer is putting Woods into handcuffs, Woods tries to talk him out of it, saying, “Come on bro, are you serious?”

But the amount of weed was apparently too much to overlook.

“I have no option. You’ve got a lot of marijuana. I can’t do anything about that,” the officer says.

Woods was booked for misdemeanor marijuana possession and a third-degree felony for evidence tampering because he stuffed the joint into the water bottle.

Undrafted out of USC in 2016, Woods has played about half of the Cowboys’ defensive snaps this season, with 15 total tackles, a quarterback hit and a fumble recovery in eight games. He has missed Dallas’ last two games to an MCL sprain, and he likely has punishment coming from the league as well.
