Packers running back Aaron Jones facing citations after traffic stop


"I spoke to Aaron after the incident", McCarthy said Monday. According to the police report, Jones was stopped on Highway 172 at 11:37 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 1. "He made a mistake, and I know it's a pending legal situation", per "But yes, I am aware of it".

According to an incident report obtained from the Wisconsin State Patrol, Trooper D. Larson clocked Jones' vehicle traveling 79 in a 55 miles-per-hour zone on Highway 172 east of Pilgram Way exit in Green Bay on October 1. The paper obtained an incident report that stated a state trooper smelled marijuana. When asked about it, Jones reportedly admitted he smoked before driving after he had eaten breakfast. Jones completed a diversion program and the charge was dropped. No drugs were found during a search of the vehicle, according to the report. He agreed to field sobriety tests and a blood test.

Jones is expected to return to court February 1, according to court records. He was later released to one of his teammates.

He ran for 125 yards against the Cowboys in his first start, and 131 against the Saints two weeks later, but he suffered a knee injury and is expected to miss a few more weeks.

Jones has 370 yards rushing with three touchdowns through four games started in his 2017 rookie campaign. The rookie started his first National Football League game in Week 5.
