Drug Charges Against J’Marcus Webb Dropped
(CBS) - A prosecutor has dropped drug charges against Bears offensive lineman J’Marcus Webb.
CBS affiliate KFVS-TV in Cape Girardeau, Mo., who first broke the arrest, reports Webb was arrested in Pulaski County on Sunday evening and charged with possession of controlled substance, cannabis and paraphernalia.
Based on a tweet from Webb Wednesday afternoon, it appears the left tackle was on his way to Texas to train.
Headed to Texas to train. I apologize.—
