The Pittsburgh Steelers backfield could be facing legal trouble. Detective Brian Kohlhepp of the Ross Township, Pennsylvania Police Department confirmed to NFL Media that running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were pulled over Wednesday around 1:30 p.m. ET. They, along with an unidentified female passenger in the backseat, were taken into custody and admitted to marijuana possession. "We are aware of the reports and still gathering information," said Burt Lauten, communications coordinator of the Steelers. "We will have no further comment at this time." A traffic officer spotted Bell's black Chevy Camaro after smelling marijuana. A medium-sized bag with about 20g of marijuana was recovered in the car. Kohlhepp anticipates that misdemeanor marijuana possession charges will be filed against Bell, Blount and the woman, but that has not happened yet.
