MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Police say Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley was ticketed for possessing marijuana and speeding in the Minneapolis suburb of Minnetonka last week.

Captain Scott Boerboom says that an officer stopped Beasley around 3 a.m. on June 26 on Interstate 394 after clocking him going 84 mph in a 65 mph zone. He says the officer smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car.

The report says the officer found 16.2 grams of it under the front passenger seat of Beasley’s car. It says Beasley claimed the marijuana was not his, but belonged to a friend whom he had just dropped off.

The possession charge is a petty misdemeanor that carries a fine of $128.

The Timberwolves say they can’t comment during the lockout.
