Hill Has Marijuana Possession Charges Dismissed

in a court hearing at Atlanta Municipal Court this morning, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill had marijuana possession charges dropped, according to his attorney.

Hill was arrested early Saturday morning on February 25, after police dogs confirmed the smell of an illegal substance emanating from his apartment while performing random floor checks in the condominiums he resides in.

According to the report, officers investigated, confirmed the odor and obtained a search warrant. Upon entry, officers found partially-smoked suspected marijuana “blunts” in plain view, as well as marijuana residue.

Hill and his girlfriend were arrested and taken into custody for possession of marijuana (less than an ounce). The two were transported to the Atlanta City Detention Center, posted bond and were released later that day.

According to Hill’s attorney, Edward T. M. Garland of the Atlanta law firm Garland, Samuel & Loeb, marijuana possession charges on Hill and his girlfriend were dismissed on a motion by the prosecution.

Both Hill and his girlfriend submitted to a urine test immediately following their arrest, and both tests came back negative.
