A Cleveland Browns rookie was cited for marijuana possession on Sunday, according to a report by ESPN reporter Tony Grossi.

The rookie, wide receiver Antonio Callaway, was also reportedly cited for driving with a suspended license at 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Callaway had slipped to the fourth round of the NFL Draft for off-the-field issues.

Here are the details, from ESPN:

According to the police incident report obtained by ESPN Cleveland, Callaway was vehicle was stopped at 2:59 a.m. on Aug. 5 when officer Eric Schubert failing to yield to oncoming traffic while turning onto Howe Road.
