Crowell, who rushed for 850 yards and six touchdowns in his freshman year at Georgia, was arrested early Friday morning after being stopped at a driving checkpoint and found with a 9mm Luger that had its serial number scratched off.
He was charged with felony count of possessing a weapon in a school zone, a felony count of altered identification mark and misdemeanor count of possession/carrying a concealed weapon. He was released from jail Friday afternoon after posting a $9,500 bond.
[Crowell] consented to a search of the vehicle, and officers didn't find the marijuana, Athens-Clarke County Police spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow told ESPN. There were other occupants inside the car and they consented to a search, but the marijuana wasn't found. During the search of the vehicle, officers found a gun under the driver's seat. After discovering that the ID number had been altered [on the gun], Mr. Crowell was arrested and charged. Marijuana was never found inside the car.
The 19-year-old faces a potential jail sentence of 10 years and a $10,000 fine, if found guilty on all three charges.
