NFLer Laurence Maroney Charged for Holding ... Weed

3/31/2011 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL running back Laurence Maroney was charged today for a drug and weapons bust in St. Louis a few months ago -- and he's only going to face a misdemeanor.

Prosecutors tagged Maroney with one count of marijuana possession -- for the arrest back in January when St. Louis PD pulled over a car and busted the former Denver Broncos player and four other people.

Cops originally booked Maroney -- who's now a free agent -- for possession of a firearm, but it was later determined he had a permit to carry the gun.

Maroney faces up to one year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

Was he stoned when he had his braided? They probably pulled him over just because or the arrest. It must have been "hair-raising!"

Another NFL player getting caught with drugs-how shocking. I seriously doubt half the players in the league can even read or barely write anything but their names. PATHETIC!
