Cowboys’ Antwaun Woods Arrested

Cowboys defensive tackle Antwaun Woods was arrested earlier this week, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. Woods faces charges for marijuana possession and tampering with evidence, which could lead to legal consequences and league discipline. 

Woods was arrested on Tuesday at a traffic stop and police say he was found with 2.07 ounces of marijuana, plus a joint. The tampering with evidence charge, presumably, stems from an alleged attempt to hide the weed.

According to the police report, Woods was going 77 in a 60 mph zone. The bigger issue, of course, is the marijuana – in Texas, the tampering charge is a third-degree felony, while the possession charge is a Class A misdemeanor.

Woods, 26, has started in all eight of his games this year. So far, he has 15 total tackles and one fumble recovery on his stat sheet.

This offseason, the Cowboys will have the option of retaining him as a restricted free agent. Because Woods entered the league as an undrafted free agent, he’d cost roughly $2MM to keep.

      Agreed. Why race around doing 77 mph when all you have to do is hide behind the grassy knoll?

    He tampered with the evidence by lighting up. Tried to smoke the evidence not sure if that is stupid or brilliant.

      It could only be brilliant if there were no ways to test the blood stream for illegal substances.

            • crosseyedlemon

              No. The test would only reveal what chemicals in what amounts were found in the blood sample at the time it was analyzed. It’s only potential evidence and a prosecuting lawyer would obviously want other supporting evidence such as police reports, witness statements etc. before presenting a case to the judge.

    Not going to go on my rant about marijuana use for pain over opioids. I think most of us know but someone needs to fill in the NFL that CBD has no hallucinogenic properties over the manufactured heroine they hand out like candy. Plus the addiction factor. Sorry just a small rant.

      Totally agree. You could rant more too if you wanted. Weed however will never be legal in the south and I could open that can of worms, but people don’t like human rights talk or politics on sports forums.

    Oh Mary Jane, so much love but then again so many odds and prohibitions, not sure why they care so much, or don’t?…
