Texans player arrested in Fort Bend County
HOUSTON -- Houston Texans fullback Jameel Cook was arrested for multiple charges, including marijuana possession, authorities said Thursday.
A sheriff's deputy stopped Cook at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday because his 2007 Mercedes sedan had no front license plate or registration sticker, sheriff's department spokeswoman Terriann Carlson said. He's free on a $500 bond after authorities said he had about two grams of marijuana, no valid Texas driver's license and no proof of liability insurance.
Cook, 29, was charged with a misdemeanor after the deputy searched the car and found a plastic bag containing two grams of marijuana, Carlson said.
A voicemail message left for Texans spokesman Tony Wyllie was not immediately returned Thursday.
Cook, who lives in Missouri City, joined the Texans in 2006 and played in all of the team's games last season. He previously had played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who drafted him in 2001.
