T.J. Ward arrested on weed possession charge!
Buccaneers safety T.J. Ward was arrested Wednesday morning in Tampa, Fla., on drug charges. Ward was charged with “possession of marijuana” and “possession of drug paraphernalia,” per the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. T.J. Ward was released from jail Wednesday after posting bail, according to clergy. The arrest stems from an Oct. 25 incident when Tampa police investigated an alarm call at Ward’s apartment, according to an incident report. During the investigation police discovered approximately 99.9 grams of marijuana in two mason jars. The Tampa Bay Times reports Wednesday’s arrest was on “an outstanding warrant” related to the October incident. The veteran defender signed a one-year deal with the Buccaneers last September just a few hours after he was cut by the Denver Broncos as teams trimmed their rosters to 53 players. Ward had an unsuccessful season in Tampa Bay, starting just five games for the Bucs. T.J. Ward is set to hit free agency this March.
