Jimmy Smith, formerly of the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested yesterday April 22nd for multiple drug charges.
After being pulled over by local police, Smith was booked on charges including:
- felony possession of cocaine
- possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana
- possession of drug paraphernalia
- driving with a suspended license
Smith is currently being held at John E. Goode Pretrial Detention Facility on bond of $5006.
Matt Jones, receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested in Arkansas this morning, July 10th, for possession of a controlled substance.
When police officers approached the vehicle he was sitting in and saw him chopping up and scraping together a white powder with a credit card, he was ordered out of the car. After disregarding the initial order, police drew guns on Jones and at that time Jones complied. A police report also noted Jones stated that the substance was cocaine (a test later proved the statement correct).
Jones was booked into the Washington County Detention Center, along with two other men that were in the car. It is unclear at this time why Jones, who was quarterback for the University of Alabama, is in the state.
