Pot Charge Against Camby Dropped

HOUSTON (AP) _ Prosecutors have dropped a marijuana possession charge against NBA veteran Marcus Camby after his arrest during a traffic stop in suburban Houston.

Camby was arrested last month after police in Pearland said they found less than two ounces of the drug inside a Porsche he was driving. Also arrested was Camby’s counsin, Kendal Johnson, who was in the vehicle.

Brazoria County District Attorney Jeri Yenne said Thursday that Camby’s charge was dropped this week after Johnson said the marijuana was his.

Johnson, who lives in Connecticut, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to a misdemeanor possession charge and was fined $1,500.

Camby’s attorney, Randall Novak, said his client committed no crime. Camby, who has a home in Pearland, played last season with the Portland Trail Blazers.
