MOUND CITY, Ill. (AP) - An Illinois prosecutor says he won't pursue charges that Chicago Bears offensive lineman J'Marcus Webb had marijuana in his vehicle during a traffic stop.

Pulaski County State's Attorney Grayson Gile tells the (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan (http://bit.ly/WrZ97g) the drug charges related to Webb's arrest Sunday night have been dropped. Gile says the case lends itself to a "fair and equitable" resolution.

Authorities say a deputy stopped Webb for speeding on Interstate 57 in Pulaski County, in far southern Illinois along the Ohio River. Webb was freed Monday on bond.

Sheriff Randy Kern and Gile didn't return telephone messages left Wednesday by The Associated Press. Online court records show the alleged traffic-related offenses but not the drug-related charges or whether Webb has an attorney.
