Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones got The Ginger Hammer earlier today. He was suspended for two games for smoking some weed.
The HORROR! The HORROR!
Anyway, despite the stupidity of all of it. And I mean all of it, including telling a fucking cop that you were actually smoking weed, Jones has learned a lesson.
And first, let me say: “No officer, that is not the case, I will need to call my lawyer now if you persist in this line of questioning.”
But hey, things you don’t learn in your 20s…
So here’s the apology.

I doubt it will define you. Or maybe I hope it won’t define you.
Thing is, now you’re in the system. There’s no more room to fuck up.
Once you’re in any system, and I can tell you this as fact, you’re pretty much fucked straight up. There’s nothing good about being in a system.
So I don’t know. Is this the end of Aaron Jones and the five-plus yards per carry and game-winning touchdown runs?
It has happened. I hope it doesn’t happen in this case.
The NFL drug policy for Marijuana indicates a first offense puts you in the program with no fine or suspension. Either this is not a first offense for Jones or Jones was suspended for a first time DUI. A first time DUI will result a 2 game suspension.
Howard you are correct about the OWI aspect. The original charges were for speeding, no valid driver license, and the operating with a restricted controlled substance. The RCS falls under the same parent statute as OWI. The speeding and the no valid DL were dismissed and the guilty plea was on the RCS violation.
Here’s hoping for the best for Aaron Jones to put this behind him, learn and move on from it.
Looking stupidity up in Websters yielded these phrases……..
Driving w/o a license.
Speeding…while knowingly driving without a license. (might as well have flashing lights in your back window saying PULL ME OVER).
Knowing substance use can have a significant negative effect on someones NFL career, then knowingly offering information up that you were smoking weed.
Hmmmm….Well, although it’s true he may learn from this. It’s also true you can’t fix stupid.
This also may or may not define him years from now. It defines him….today.
