Joseph arrested

Updated: 3:20 p.m.

Bengals cornerback Johnathan Joseph was arrested in Boone County, Kentucky overnight on a marijuana possession charge.

According to published reports, Joseph was a passenger in a car driven by a woman that had a suspended license and was driving slowly and weaving. When a Boone County sheriff's deputy asked Joseph to get out of the vehicle, he smelled marijuana, and the deputy searched Joseph's black backpack with a Super Bowl logo and found a bag of marijuana in a pouch, the arrest report said.

The reports said Joseph was released Monday morning, and his first court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 5, the day after the Super Bowl. Marijuana possession is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum of one year in jail and a maximum $500 fine.

According to the NFL substance abuse policy, first-time offenders are usually fined a game check and not suspended.

But the Bengals are continuing a string of offenses that players suggested contributed to an 8-8 season that cost them the playoffs and caused head coach Marvin Lewis to vow to be tougher in the upcoming season.

Joseph became the ninth Bengals player to be arrested since Dec. 15, 2005.

The Bengals don't comment on on-going litigation.

Joseph had one of the best rookie seasons ever by a Bengals first-round draft pick, starting at cornerback over the last half of the season and leading the team with 19 pass breakups.

I dont care what team the players are from..........(although its pretty funny when its from the Bengals).......regardless.....the NFL needs to put a stop to all these players being arrested........In real life if you are arrested you proubably end up losing your job........It is time the NFL starts to BAN troubled players from the NFL forever........
