BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech freshman defensive tackle Norell Pollard was charged with possession of marijuana on campus on the night of Oct. 24.
A team spokesperson said Tech is aware of the situation, but declined any further comment.
Pollard was cited at 11:53 p.m. on Oct. 24 near the university’s Food Science and Technology Building, according to Virginia Tech police call logs. The arrest report obtained by The Roanoke Times from the Virginia Tech police department didn’t provide any further details of the incident.
The incident came during the Hokies off week ahead of a game against Notre Dame on Nov. 2. The true freshman had five tackles and two sacks making his second career start in a 43-41 overtime win over North Carolina before the bye week.
Under Virginia law, possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail and/or up to a $500 fine.
Pollard is scheduled for an initial court hearing on December 12.
