Colts RB Robert Turbin Charged With Marijuana Possession

According to Will Feelright of the Cache Valley Daily, Colts RB Robert Turbin charged with one count of possession or use of a controlled substance Tuesday in Utah.

Turbin was hosting a football camp at his alma mater Utah State. He was pulled over after rolling through a stop sign on Friday, and the officer found a joint in his car.

The officer made a traffic stop and make contact with the driver, who was Robert Turbin,” said Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley. “Upon contact, the officer immediately smelled the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle.”

“As the process moved forward, Mr. Turbin was very cooperative with the officers. There was located inside the vehicle, in the center console by the driver, a marijuana cigarette, commonly referred to as a joint.”

Turbin is subject to potential discipline from the NFL, which won’t help his chances of making the Colts’ 53-man roster.

Turbin, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He was waived by the Seahawks during the season last year, but was claimed off of waivers by the Browns.

Turbin’s stay in Cleveland was short lived, as the Browns wound up waiving him after a just few months. The Cowboys signed him to a contract and gave him the opportunity to finish out the year in Dallas.

Back in March, Colts signed Turbin to a one-year, $760,000 contract.

In 2015, Turbin appeared in 10 games and ran for 199 yards on 50 carries (4 YPC) to go along with seven receptions for 23 yards receiving and a touchdown.
