KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Los Angeles Rams sixth-round draft pick John Kelly has pleaded guilty and agreed to pay court costs but will have his misdemeanor drug charge dismissed if he avoids trouble for a year.
Kelly was cited for possession of a Schedule VI substance and University of Tennessee linebacker Will Ignont was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia last fall after Knoxville police found 4.6 grams of marijuana and a glass pipe during a traffic stop.
Tennessee law defines marijuana as a "Schedule VI" drug.
Kelly, a running back from Tennessee, pleaded guilty Tuesday but will have the charge dropped in a year if he avoids trouble in a judicial diversion program.
Ignont's case also will be dismissed if he avoids trouble for a year, performs 24 hours community service and pays court costs.
