Browns rookie wide receiver Antonio Callaway was cited in Strongsville Sunday night for marijuana possession, authorities confirmed.

The 2018 NFL draft pick was cited on Howe Road at about 3 a.m. on Sunday morning, according to court records. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance – marijuana and driving with a suspended license.

According to the police incident report, Callaway was driving a vehicle and was stopped at 2:59 a.m. on Aug. 5 when an officer observed him failing to yield to oncoming traffic while turning onto Howe Road.

Callaway’s driver’s license was found to be suspended. The officer also found “a small amount” of suspected marijuana under the driver’s seat, the report states. 

The vehicle was picked up by a family member, the report continues. Callaway was ordered to appear in Strongsville Mayor's Court on Thursday at 9:30 a.m. 

Deputy Chief John Janowski told ESPN the amount of marijuana was small enough to be regarded as a minor misdemeanor under Ohio law.

Head coach Hue Jackson said he wants to find out all the facts before he makes a strong comment about Callaway's citation, but said, "We do not take things lightly," according to ClevelandBrowns.com.

Earlier this year, Callaway failed a drug test at the NFL combine, the Associated Press reported. He was also cited for marijuana possession in Florida in May 2017.

A representative for the Cleveland Browns released the following statement: "We’re aware of the citation are in the process of gathering more information and will comment further at the appropriate time.”
