According to The Charlotte Observer, the Charlotte Hornets power forward Montrezl Harrell is facing felony drug charges stemming from a traffic stop in Richmond, Ky., last month.

“Trooper Jesse Owens stated he ‘upon stop observed odor of marijuana’ from the silver 2020 Honda Pilot that Harrell was driving, according to the citation. Harrell, Owens wrote in the report, ‘admitted to being in possession of marijuana and produced a small amount from his sweatpants.’ During a subsequent search of the vehicle, which the report states Harrell claims was rented, ‘three pounds of marijuana in vacuum sealed bags’ were found in a backpack in the back seat, according to the citation. He’s been charged with trafficking less than five pounds of marijuana.”
