Houston Texans running back D’Onta Foreman is going to get off rather lightly after charges from a July arrest have been dropped.
Originally, Foreman, according to a statement from a UTPD spokesperson, got arrested after officers “responded to a report of the smell of marijuana coming from three occupied vehicles” near a residence hall on campus. The statement at the time also said, “Officers arrived on the scene discovered marijuana in each vehicle and also discovered a firearm in one of them.”
At the time, Foreman was arrested for unlawful carrying of weapons and possession of marijuana while six others were cited for marijuana possession and released.
Foreman’s attorney told the Houston Chronicle that the running back pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Thanks to that plea deal, the charges of possession of marijuana and unlawful carrying of a weapon have been dropped.
Even better for Foreman, the disorderly conduct charge will also be dismissed if he has no legal issues for 90 days.
This past season, Foreman ran for 327 yards on the ground, carrying the rock only 78 times. He did deal with injury issues during his rookie season.
