Found March 05, 2012 on
A marijuana possession charge against Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill was dropped Monday after he passed a drug test, The Tacoma News Tribune reported.
Hill was arrested Feb. 25 in Atlanta after police received a complaint of a suspicious smell coming from his condo.
According to the police report, officers obtained a search warrant and after going inside found what they suspected were partially-smoked marijuana "blunts" in plain sight.
Hill, 29, and his girlfriend were arrested on a charge of possessing less than an ounce of marijuana. Both were cleared Monday after a urine test showed they had not used the drug.
"This morning the charges against Leroy Hill Jr. were completely dismissed because he was innocent of having any knowledge that trace amounts of marijuana were in his apartment," his attorney, Edward T. M. Garland said.
"He took a urine test immediately following his arrest and it showed that he was negative for any drugs in his system, as did the young woman who was with him."
The arrest was Hill's third in the past three years, and if he had been convicted he would have been facing further discipline from the NFL.
Hill, who will become a free agent March 13, started all 16 games last season, finishing with 89 tackles and four sacks.
