PEKIN, Ill. (AP) -Bill Maas, a former Fox Sports broadcaster who used to play in the NFL, will be tried March 10 on drug and weapons charges.
Maas was arraigned Monday, pleading not guilty and requesting a jury trial. He was charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance after Illinois State Police allegedly found cocaine and ecstasy in his sport utility vehicle during a July roadside safety check in East Peoria.
The 45-year-old broadcaster is also charged with misdemeanor unlawful use of a weapon after police said he had a loaded handgun in the car.
Maas, a lineman, played for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers from 1984-93.
