From the Houston Chronicle:
Rockets forward Justin Reed was cleared of misdemeanor marijuana charges Tuesday because others submitted affidavits claiming the drugs, his attorney said.
Reed was arrested Sept. 4 and charged with possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, which carries a fine of $100 to $250. He posted a $500 bond and was released later that night. Reed's attorney, Dale Danks Jr., told the Associated Press the Hinds County Sheriff's Department had dismissed the charges Tuesday.
"There were two other individuals arrested in addition to Justin. Both of them admitted the marijuana was theirs and not Justin's, which makes sense because Justin has been drug-tested at least 16 times by the NBA and during the four years he was at Ole Miss," Danks said.
We had a drug test administered after the arrest, and he did not test positive.
