LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) -New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk was issued a misdemeanor summons for possession of marijuana Tuesday.
Capt. John Babin of the Lafayette Metro Narcotics Task Force confirmed the summons.
Faulk, a Louisiana native and former LSU star, was on his way to a suite in the Lafayette Cajundome to watch a performance by rapper Lil Wayne, when a routine search by a sheriff's deputy turned up four marijuana cigarettes, Babin said.
Everyone heading to the suites was searched, Babin said.
Faulk was not arrested or required to post bond.
``He was cited for simple possession, which is a misdemeanor,'' Babin said. ``It's based on an amount possessed for personal use.''
Faulk will be sent a letter notifying him of the court date when it is set.
``There was no trouble, Kevin was very cooperative,'' Babin said.
``We are aware of the report, but I don't have any additional comment at this time,'' Patriots spokesman Stacey James said.
