OWINGS MILLS — Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and kick returner David Reed has been issued a summons for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, according to Maryland court records.
The case stems from a December police investigation at his Baltimore County residence.
Reed has been assigned a Feb. 23 court date in Catonsville District Court.
Reed is represented by Towson attorney Richard Karceski.
The case isn’t considered to be a major legal problem and Reed’s record could possibly wind up being expunged at some point depending on how it’s adjudicated.
The case originates from a December investigation at Reed’s residence in Owings Mills after a neighbor complained to police and officers obtained a search warrant.
No charges were immediately filed.
However, police did take evidence from his residence that was submitted for testing at their crime lab, according to Baltimore County police spokesman Robert McCullough.
At the time of the incident, Reed had little to say about the incident.
"I’m good," Reed told 24×7. "I ain’t got nothing to say right now."
Reed wasn’t disciplined by the team, but could face punishment from the NFL if convicted of a crime.
Days after the initial investigation, Reed set a franchise record with a 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in a win over the Houston Texans.
The fifth-round draft pick from Utah led the NFL with a 29.3 kickoff return average, missing the final few games due to a concussion and a torn wrist ligament.
