Antonio Callaway’s marijuana possession charge dismissed

The misdemeanor marijuana possession charge against Browns receiver Antonio Callaway was dismissed last month, according to Berea Municipal Court documents.

A small amount of marijuana was found in Callaway’s car during an Aug. 5 traffic stop in Strongsville. He pleaded not guilty and a trial date was set for Friday, but the charge was dismissed Jan. 25.

Callaway, a fourth-round pick in 2018, said after the stop the marijuana wasn’t his and he didn’t know it was in the car after it had recently been shipped from Florida.

He settled two other matters last month.

He pleaded guilty to driving without a valid license during the Aug. 5 stop, a reduced charge from driving while under suspension. He was placed on one year probation.

He also pleaded guilty to speeding in a separate incident Oct. 14 in Strongsville, where he was cited for going 58 mph in a 35 mph zone.

He paid a total of $911 in fines and court costs.

Callaway could still be disciplined under the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He was placed in the league’s substance abuse program after failing a drug test at the scouting combine last year.

He started 11 of 16 games, catching 43 passes for 586 yards and a team-high five touchdowns.
