Freeman: Blazers C Marcus Camby Cleared Of Pot Charges

Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that Portland Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby will not face any charges related to a recent arrest for alleged marijuana possession. ------------------------ The marijuana possession charges against Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby have been dropped by the Brazoria County (Texas) district attorney’s office and his criminal record has been cleared. Camby and Kendal Johnson were arrested last month after police discovered a small amount of marijuana in Camby’s car during a traffic stop in Pearland, Texas. But after weighing evidence — and accepting a guilty plea from Johnson — Camby has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. Johnson, 24, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a Class B Misdemeanor possession charge and paid a $1,500 fine. ------------------------ Two weeks ago, Camby was arrested when marijuana was found in his vehicle during a traffic stop. Shortly after the news broke, sources close to him maintained that he doesn't smoke marijuana. -- Ben Golliver | | Twitter
