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.

Looks like Wendy's has got a new spokes person for their fish and chicken sandwiches. Buy a fish sando and get a grape or orange soda. Compliments of dumb ass Maroney.

Braids on 'roids -- how does he stuff those things under his football helmet? Does he need a specially-fitted helmet to protect his precious 'do?
Me so grateful to be living in Holland, where the law has better things to prosecute besides possession of marijuana. Sheesh!
