Green Bay Packers running back and former UTEP Miner Aaron Jones is in legal trouble following an Oct. 1 arrest in Brown County, Wisconsin.

According to online court records, Jones is accused of speeding, operating a vehicle without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a restricted controlled substance.

ESPN reports Jones was stopped on Highway 172 just before noon on Sunday Oct. 1. The Packers did not play that day because they had a Thursday game that week.

According to a police report, the responding officer smelled marijuana and reported Jones’ eyes being red and bloodshot. No drugs were found in his possession, ESPN reports.

The arrest came days after Jones made his first-ever Lambeau Leap after a 2-yard touchdown run against the Chicago Bears.

According to court records, Jones issued a not guilty plea on Nov. 15.

His next scheduled court appearance is on Feb. 1, just a few days before the 2018 Super Bowl.

ESPN reports Jones could face a suspension from the NFL, but the league likely won’t take action until the legal case is resolved.
