After completing 50 hours of community service, New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount has had his drug charge withdrawn, according to KDKA.
Blount, who started the 2014 season as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, incurred the charge when he and running back Le’Veon Bell were stopped Aug. 20 on McKnight Road in Ross Township and police found marijuana in the vehicle.
In December a district judge ordered Blount to complete 50 hours of community service by Feb. 4. According to Blount’s attorney, the running back recently completed his community service in Boston at a program geared toward helping inner-city youth.
The Steelers signed Blount to a two-year contract back in March but waived him less than 24 hours after a Week 11 episode when he left the field disgruntled about his playing time before a game was over against the Tennessee Titans.
Blount still stands to face discipline from the league during the offseason.
