TAMPA - Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Terrell “T.J.” Ward had 99.9 grams of weed in plain sight when cops entered his apartment back in October, and that's ultimately why he was arrested Wednesday morning, TMZ Sports reports.
TMZ Sports obtained the criminal report from the October 25 incident. It shows officers responded to Ward's apartment for an active intrusion alarm. When police arrived, they knocked on the door and announced themselves. A woman inside told the officers to "come in."
There was apparently no emergency -- the alarm may have been an accident -- but when police saw marijuana on the coffee table, they busted both T.J. and the woman for felony marijuana possession.
TMZ reports Ward was only formally charged on December 29 -- and that's when a warrant was issued for his arrest. On Wednesday morning, officers went to his apartment and arrested him.
Records show the 21-year-old has since bonded out of jail after posting a $2,500 bond.
