GRIFFIN, Ga. -- New England Patriots defensive lineman Johnathan Sullivan faces several charges, including possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, after being stopped while driving through this city south of Atlanta, police said.

Sullivan, 25, was stopped by a police officer just before 4 a.m. on Sunday after he ran two stop signs, a police report said.

When he approached the vehicle, the officer noted that Sullivan and his passenger, Tamarco Clemons, 24, were not wearing their seatbelts, the report said. He also noticed a small bag containing "a green leafy substance that appeared to be marijuana."

The officer asked if there were any weapons in the car, and Sullivan gave him a handgun. The two men were asked to exit the vehicle so the officer could search it. When asked if the bag belonged to either of them, both men said no, according to the report.

The report said Sullivan was charged with a seatbelt violation, running the stop signs, playing loud music and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

Sullivan was a 2003 first-round draft pick for the New Orleans Saints from Georgia, and was traded to the Patriots earlier this month.

Clemons was charged with not wearing his seatbelt and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

The men were released on bond Sunday and are scheduled to appear in court on July 20, said a spokeswoman for the Griffin Police Department.

Yeah, Sullivan was an idiot before the Patriots decided to sign him. Clearly a case of you get what you pay for.

I heard an interview with Saints GM Mickey Loomis a week or so ago and he pretty much came out and said Sullivan was a lazy, unmotivated player.
I think the smart bet would be that Belichick and Co. gives him the axe sometime during training camp.

BTW-What is it with pro athletes and the need to carry firearms???.......it's just asking for trouble IMO.

I was wondering the same thing. I can see it maybe if you're a super star. Some nut job might want to take you out for whatever reason. But how many people would know who Sullivan was, or care?
