By West Kentucky Star Staff
LOUISVILLE, KY - Louisville men’s basketball player Jaylen
Johnson pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in Woodford County
Monday. He must pay a $260 fine, as reported by WDRB. Johnson will
appear in court again next week to prove he paid the fine.
“We just became aware of the matter
and have addressed it internally,” Senior Associate Athletic
Director Kenny Klein said in an email.
Police pulled Johnson over March 22 for
not having a visible license plate. According to officers, the
vehicle smelled of marijuana and they reported they found some hidden
in a Gatorade bottle in the car.
