Le’Veon Bell facing a two game suspension for his past marijuana charge

bellSteelers running back Le’Veon Bell will spend 15 months on probation in a first-offender’s program stemming from his arrest on marijuana possession and DUI charges. Bell’s driver’s license will also be suspended for 60 days. But under terms of the program, he can petition the court to have his arrest record expunged if he completes the probation.

Defense attorney Robert Del Greco Jr. said Friday that Bell likely faces up to a two-game NFL suspension. Bell, 22, and Blount, 28, were arrested Aug. 20 after a motorcycle officer in Ross Township, a suburb just north of Pittsburgh, smelled marijuana coming from a vehicle Bell was driving hours before a team flight to a preseason game in Philadelphia.

This is a slap on the wrist, but Bell is likely to be suspended by the NFL which could hurt the Steelers if they cannot find depth.
