The marijuana charges against Patriots running back LeGrrett Blount have been dropped ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Blount’s charges were dropped after he completed 50 hours of community service. According to his attorney, Blount worked with Urban Achievers in Boston to satisfy the community service.
Urban Achievers lists themselves as a group that works to improve “the academic and social outcomes of children living in under-served and under-resourced communities.”
The chargers were filed when Blount was still a member of the Steelers. Blount and Le’Veon Bell were arrested prior to the start of the regular season on Aug. 20 when police found marijuana in the car driven by Bell.
The Steelers eventually grew tired of Blount’s antics which included a locker room trip and attempted exit prior to the completion of a game on Nov. 17 in Tennessee. A day later he was released.
Now that the Pennsylvania case against Blount has been resolved the NFL can now discipline him.
Blount ran for 148 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries in the AFC Championship Game against the Colts.
