The video of Jaelen Strong’s arrest for marijuana possession has been acquired and released by TMZ Sports. In the video, Strong can clearly be seen in the passenger side of an unknown vehicle cooperating fully with the officers on the scene…after a little bit of insistence, of course. All three occupants of the vehicle, including Packers cornerback Damarious Randall, initially lied to the police when questioned about the presence of drugs in the car. When an officer wearing a body camera notified them that he had a K-9 unit present, Strong almost immediately gave up the marijuana on his person and submitted himself to arrest.
As far as drugs arrests go, this was about as peaceful an encounter as one could possibly hope for, but at the end of the day it was still a monumentally stupid decision by both Strong and Randall. One can only hope that they learned their lesson and will wait until after their potentially lucrative careers are over to smoke up.
