MANITOWOC – Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison will pay a $330.50 fine to settle a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge after it was amended to a Manitowoc County ordinance violation.

The plea agreement was reached Tuesday in Manitowoc County Circuit Court. His sentence also includes completion of community service hours. The case is now closed.

Although the court case is concluded, Allison could still face discipline, including possible suspension, under the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

The Packers and the NFL had no comment Wednesday.

Allison, 23, was pulled over for speeding by the Wisconsin State Patrol on Interstate 43 near Francis Creek Sept. 4.

According to a criminal complaint, the trooper smelled marijuana emanating from the car, but Allison denied smoking marijuana or having an illegal substance in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle produced three cigars that tested positive for THC.

Allison was arrested for possession of marijuana and taken to the Manitowoc County Jail, where he declined to answer any questions. He posted a $100 bond and was cited for speeding, which carried a $200.50 fine.

This will be Allison’s second year in the NFL as a Packers wide receiver.
