Green Bay Packers free agent Letroy Guion got some good news on Tuesday as the case stemming from his arrest in his Starke, Florida on February 3rd has been closed. He will not be prosecuted and the incident will not remain on his record, per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.
Guion was arrested after being pulled over for erratic driving. Police found 357 grams of marijuana and an unloaded gun that was registed to Guion in Minnesota. They seized his truck and also took the $190,028.81 in cash that was with him.
A spokesman for the Starke, Florida, police department confirmed Guion reached a plea deal that included a $5,000 fine plus court costs, and as a first-time offender the charges were dismissed without adjudication of guilt.
“Hopefully he learned from his mistake and can continue his NFL career,” captain Barry K. Warren, public information officer for the Starke, Florida, police department said.
Guion’s (as a free agent) next step is getting signed with an NFL team, as well as getting his cash and truck back, still pending in the civil forfeiture case.
“I stand by what I said during the season, after the season,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said last month at the NFL scouting combine. “I thought he was an impactful personality and played good football. I’m hopeful that we get past this, and the monitoring gives us the green light to go forward, but I’d love to have Letroy back.”
