Bengals WR Boyd facing charges in car accident

By  | 

JEFFERSON HILLS, Pa. (AP) Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd was charged Thursday with owning a vape pen containing the active ingredient in marijuana that police say was found when his friend crashed the NFL player's car near Pittsburgh in July.

Jefferson Hills police say Boyd, a former star at the University of Pittsburgh, lent his car to a friend who crashed it about 3 a.m. on July 12. Boyd wasn't in the car.

But police say they found an open bottle of cognac, an unopened bottle of peach vodka, and two vape pens and several unopened vape cartridges containing THC.

Boyd's attorney, Daniel Konieczka (koh-NETCH'-kah) says there "might be some factual confusion" over who owned the vape items. But police say Boyd acknowledged owning one of the vape pens.
