Penn State players cleared in marijuana case

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

A man visiting an apartment shared by four Penn State football players faces a misdemeanor drug charge after police found marijuana residue and drug-related items while investigating a party the night of April 25.

Ronald Bridges, a non-Penn State student visiting the apartment, was charged with the controlled substance drug, device and cosmetic act. You might need to be a lawyer to understand exactly what that means, but the bottom line is the investigation has been closed without any players being charged. That's very good news for Penn State.

The apartment is registered to four Nittany Lions players -- running back Stephfon Green, defensive end Eric Latimore, defensive tackle Devon Still and offensive lineman Johnnie Troutman.
