Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Pittsburgh Steelers running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount face charges of marijuana possession and Bell faces an additional charge of DUI, according to multiple media outlets.
The two ball carriers and an unidentified female were arrested after Ross Township Police in Pittsburgh smelled the scent of marijuana coming from a black Camaro that Bell was driving.
The three jointly admitted to possessing the marijuana and likely face charges, while Bell was taken to a local hospital for a blood test to see if he was driving under the influence.
Bell finished with 860 yards on 244 carries in his rookies season with the Steelers in 2013. Blount, meanwhile, is spending his first season in Black and Gold after signing an offseason deal with the team.
Pittsburgh visits Philadelphia on Thursday to kick off Week 3 of the preseason.
