JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Jimmy Smith was pulled over and found with crack cocaine and marijuana in his car.
Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Bill Leeper says the 40-year-old Smith, who played 10 seasons for Jacksonville, was pulled over on Interstate 95 in Jacksonville on Wednesday afternoon for excessive window tint on his 2009 Mercedes Benz.
The trooper reported that the inside of the car smelled like burnt marijuana. During a search, the trooper found crack cocaine, marijuana and a business card with powder cocaine residue in the car's center console.
Smith faces multiple drug charges, plus a charge of driving with a suspended license. He was being held at the Duval County Jail with no bond set.
