Sam Shields Charged with Marijuana Possession

Packers cornerback Sam Shields has been charged with possession of marijuana, according to a criminal complaint filed in Brown County.

WBAY TV reports that Brown County Drug Task Force investigators went to Shields’ home in October after a suspicious package was delivered to the home from Colorado, where recreational marijuana is legal.

Shields allegedly answered the door with a blunt in hand, and the officers noted a strong smell of marijuana in the home. A search revealed both marijuana and marijuana-laced candy in Shields’ home.

He was arrested and charged with one count of possession of THC and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Attorneys entered a not guilty plea on Shields’ behalf in court this morning.

The seventh-year cornerback has been on injured reserve in October due to a concussion.
