It was the second time in less than three weeks that police had been called to Newsome's home.
A Zionsville, Indiana, police spokesperson said Thursday that officers were called to Newsome's home early in the morning on January 31 because of a complaint about loud music. Police, who had a search warrant, found marijuana in the residence. A friend of Newsome's was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana that morning.
Newsome and the same friend were in the residence again when police were called early Wednesday morning because of a similar noise complaint, the spokesman said. Newsome was taken into custody on two counts of possession of marijuana after he was observed with the drug.
The Colts said in a statement Wednesday that they were aware of the reports of Newsome's arrest, "but until we have had an opportunity to review the facts relevant to the case, it would be inappropriate for us to make a comment."
While at Ball State, Newsome was suspended for two games following an August 2012 possession arrest when a bag containing marijuana was found in his wallet.
Newsome, the Colts' fifth-round draft pick in 2014, tied for the team lead in sacks that season with 6.5. He had one sack this past season.
