Former Steeler and current New England Patriot LeGarrette Blount leaves a court appearance Dec. 10.
A marijuana charge filed against former Steelers player LeGarrette Blount was dismissed today after he completed community service, according to his attorney.
Attorney Casey White said he received confirmation Monday that Mr. Blount, who now plays for the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots, had completed 50 hours of service.
Mr. White said his client mentored children through a group called Urban Achievers in Boston.
Ross police charged Mr. Blount with a marijuana violation in August after they said they smelled marijuana coming from a car driven by Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, 22. An attorney for Mr. Bell has said his client hopes to complete a program for first-time offenders that would allow him to have his charges withdrawn also.
"He was happy to put this behind him," Mr. White said of Mr. Blount. "He knew flying out West that his duties regarding this were fulfilled and it was just a matter of paperwork being processed."
