Adams was charged with three misdemeanors: possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, driving without insurance and having a suspended/canceled/revoked vehicle registration. was first to report Adams’ arrest.

“The Packers are aware of the matter involving Montravius Adams,” a team spokesperson said in a statement issued to PackersNews. “We will refrain from making any further comment as it is an ongoing legal matter.”

Adams was pulled over Tuesday night for driving with an expired registration, according to the report. When the arresting officer approached Adams’ vehicle, he smelled the odor of marijuana. A probable cause search led to finding of an amount of marijuana less than an ounce, according to the report.

Adams was arrested and transported to the Houston County detention center for processing. He was released four hours after the arrest after being booked on a $2,964 bond. Adams may be subject to league discipline.

He has played sparingly in his first three seasons, including only 187 snaps last fall. In 37 career games, he has recorded 1.5 sacks.
