Indianapolis Colts running back Robert Turbin was arrested for possession of marijuana last week, the Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday.

Turbin was stopped by police officers in Logan, Utah, after he ran a stop sign at 11:30 p.m. local time last Friday.

Officers smelled marijuana in Turbin's car and sent the K9 unit to inspect. Once they found marijuana in his car, Turbin was arrested but eventually released him on a citation.

Turbin had a passenger with him at the time of the traffic stop. Police said he was polite and cooperative.

The misdemeanor offense carries a $1,00 fine and up to six months in prison.

Turbin, 26, is entering his fifth season in the NFL and his first with the Colts. He has played for the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns and Dallas Cowboys, amassing 1,127 yards and a touchdown on 281 carries in 58 games.
