Letroy Shelton Guion, Jr., who currently plays for the Green Bay Packers, was arrested in his hometown of Starke, according to the Starke Police Department.
The report stated that Guion, 27, was stopped while driving a 2015-model Dodge Ram truck in multiple lanes. The officer reported he could smell marijuana in the vehicle. After Guion displayed hostile behavior, the officer called for additional units, according to the statement released by the police department.
After additional officers arrived, the original officer searched the truck, citing probable cause. Guion told the officer there was a semi-automatic handgun in the truck, which was quickly found. He approached the truck a few times during the search, referencing money in the truck when he did. The report then said Guion rushed the truck and was handcuffed afterward.
The search revealed a large bag holding a reported 357 grams of marijuana. After testing confirmed the contents of the bags, Guion was formally arrested on charges of possession of marijuana over 20 grams, a felony charge, and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, also a felony. The bag also contained $190,028.81.
Guion’s truck, money, gun and bag were all seized. Bond was set at $100,000.
Guion played football at Bradford High School and Florida State University before he was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings.
