According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Texans rookie RB D’Onta Foreman voluntarily took a drug test for marijuana after his recent arrest and the results came back negative.
“The lab has returned D’Onta’s results,” Foreman’s attorney, Chip Lewis said. “He is crystal clean, everything negative for any illicit drugs, marijuana, absolutely nothing.”
“It illustrates what D’Onta has said since his arrest that he was not smoking marijuana. He did not possess marijuana,” Lewis said. “It makes it clear that he was telling the truth. He was not using marijuana.”
A statement has been released on behalf of Texans rookie RB D’Onta Foreman denying that he possessed marijuana and the handgun he had was legally registered with the state.
