Police found marijuana in a car driven by Browns running back Kareem Hunt on Tuesday afternoon; he was cited for a traffic violation after he was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 90 in Rocky River.

According to the report, Rocky River police officers pulled the star player over on Jan. 21 for speeding. When officers approached the car, they smelled marijuana emanating from the vehicle.

Hunt was placed in the back of a police cruiser while authorities searched his car. Inside the vehicle, police found small amounts of marijuana in three different spots, the report stated.

Hunt was cited for speeding.

According to Rocky River Municipal Court, no charges have been filed with the court.

Although some communities have decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana, possession of less than 200 grams of marijuana is still a minor misdemeanor in Rocky River, according to the city's code of ordinances.

Hunt joined the Browns after being cut by the Kansas City Chiefs after he was caught on camera pushing and kicking a woman at a Cleveland hotel.

News 5 has reached out to the Browns for a response.
