CLEVELAND (AP) -Baltimore Ravens cornerback Derrick Martin was cited on a charge of drug abuse after police say he was found in possession of suspected marijuana at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
Police Lt. Thomas Stacho said on Monday he confirmed with Ravens director of security Darren Sanders that Martin was the individual arrested. A day earlier police were not able to confirm whether Martin was a Ravens player.
Airport screeners discovered three small packets of suspected marijuana while searching Martin at a security checkpoint Saturday, police said.
Martin was issued a ticket and will be sent a summons to appear in Cleveland Municipal Court on July 15, Stacho said. The maximum penalty for misdemeanor drug abuse is a $150 fine, chief city prosecutor Victor Perez said.
Martin, 23, was a sixth-round draft pick in 2006 out of Wyoming. He did not return a phone call seeking comment.
Baltimore Ravens spokesman Chad Steele said Martin told the team he was not cited.
