Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell received 15 months of probation stemming from DUI charges back in August.
At the time of the arrest, Bell was driving with former Steelers’ running back LeGarrette Blount when the two were arrested after being stopped by an officer who smelled marijuana coming for Bell’s car. Both players fessed up to purchasing and smoking marijuana, at which point Bell commented that he “didn’t know that you could get a DUI for being high.”
As part of the probation, Bell will enter the Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition program. This program is for first-time non-violent offenders. He also received a 60-day suspension of his driver’s license. After completing the probation, Bell can ask the court to have his arrest record expunged.
According to Bell’s lawyer, his client could still face disciplinary charges from the league for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy.
As for Blount, who was let go from the Steelers in November, he completed 50 hours of community service and had his pot possession charges dismissed.
