Panthers WR Shi Smith Arrested For Weapons Possession

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Shi Smith was arrested Friday on charges of unlawful carrying of a handgun, possession of marijuana, and speeding in his hometown of South Carolina, WSOC-TV’s DaShawn Brown reports.

While the team is aware of his arrest, they declined to comment as it is a pending legal matter.

ESPN’s David Newton reports Smith’s charges included possession of a narcotic — weed — with intent to distribute, according to public records.

The 23-year-old was released on a $5,000 bond for the narcotic charge and an additional $1,000 bond for the gun-related charge. The 23-year-old has a court date set for June 14, which is scheduled to be the second day of Carolina’s four-day minicamp, ESPN reports.

  1. So shocking………said no one!
    He’ll get a $250 fine for the MJ, and $40 for the gun, naturally.
    The NFL will require that he make a “Inspire” PSA about the need for ‘Criminal Justice Reform’.
