Pot charge dropped against Patriots' Blount near Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (AP) Prosecutors have dropped a marijuana charge against New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount that stemmed from an August arrest with former Pittsburgh Steelers teammate Le'Veon Bell.

West View District Judge Richard Opiela told Blount at a court appearance last month that the misdemeanor marijuana possession charge would go away if the player completed 50 hours of community service by Feb. 4.

Blount's Pittsburgh-based attorney, Casey White, notified the court Friday that Blount had satisfied the requirement by working with a group called Urban Achievers in Boston. The group's website says it works to improve "the academic and social outcomes of children living in under-served and under-resourced communities."
