Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Kevin Pierre-Lewis was arrested on Thursday night and is facing a handful of charges, including misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Per Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star, Pierre-Lewis is being charged with “misdemeanor possession of marijuana, THC and drug paraphernalia, driving without a valid driver’s license and failure to display a valid license plate or current registration.”

The linebacker was pulled over by the Kansas Highway Patrol, which made the arrest. On Friday, Pierre-Lewis appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to the charges. He has a Feb. 1 court date and, per the report, has yet to retain a lawyer in this case.

Originally a fourth-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks in 2014, Pierre-Lewis appeared in 14 games for the Chiefs in 2017, tallying 25 tackles.
