Indianapolis Colts running back cited for possession of marijuana in Utah
LOGAN, Utah – An Indianapolis Colts running back was cited on a possession of marijuana charge in Utah after police saw him run a stop sign.
Robert Turbin, who signed with the Colts in the offseason, was stopped around 11:30 p.m. Friday, according to the Logan City Police Department. The incident happened a day before Turbin hosted his annual youth football camp.
Officers reported seeing Turbin’s car run a stop sign and pulled him over. They smelled marijuana and called a K-9 to check the car; the search turned up a marijuana cigarette.
Turbin cooperated with officers and was released after getting a citation. In Utah, possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor that carries up to six months and a $1,000 fine. Turbin could face a suspension of up to four games without pay under the NFL’s banned substances policy.
Turbin, who played college football at Utah State, has also played for the Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks.
