Cleveland Browns rookie Antonio Callaway will fight marijuana citation in court

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Antonio Callaway had gun parts and ammunition in his vehicle when he was pulled over Sunday, Aug. 5, TMZ Sports reports.

Strongsville Police said the news didn't make the initial police report because Callaway wasn't cited for anything but marijuana.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver was written up for marijuana possession after police pulled him over around 3 a.m. on Howe Road for failure to yield into oncoming traffic.

The rookie had a backstrap, and a couple rounds of ammunition in the trunk of his car.

Callaway's lawyer, Kevin Spellacy, informed Cleveland 19 on Wednesday afternoon that he and his client intend to fight the marijuana citation.

Callaway said he recently got the car in question from his family in Florida, and had no idea the marijuana was inside it.

According to the police report, Callaway was also driving under a suspended license.

After police searched his vehicle, they found a bag of marijuana under the driver's seat.

The rookie has had an issue with drugs in the past, but the Browns took a chance on him.

He was picked up in the fourth round, even with failed a drug test at the NFL combine.

The rookie was expected to be the starter after the team traded Corey Coleman, but this raises a good deal of questions for the receiving core.
