“He made a mistake:" Packers running back Aaron Jones facing citations after traffic stop

GREEN BAY– Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones faces three citations following a traffic stop last month.

According to Wisconsin State Patrol officials, a trooper stopped Jones for speeding on Highway 172 westbound at Interstate 41 on Sunday, October 1st.  Upon speaking with Jones, the trooper observed red and blood shot eyes, and detected the odor of marijuana.

Jones allegedly told the trooper he smoked marijuana after he ate breakfast, according to the Wisconsin State Patrol.

The trooper issued three citations: Operating with a restricted controlled substance, operating without a valid license and speeding in a 55 mph zone (20-24).

Written not guilty pleas were entered November 15th. The next court date scheduled is February 1st, according to court records.

WLUK reports that Coach Mike McCarthy addressed the matter at a news conference Monday, saying: “He made a mistake. Aware of the situation. Spoke with him. It’s a pending legal matter.”

Jones' attorney, Brian Maloney, told Fox 11 he had no comment or statement on the matter.
