Shields Pleads No Contest To Pot Possession, Fined $500

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Green Bay, WI) ¬†— ¬†Former Green Bay Packers’ corner Sam Shields is fined 500-dollars after reaching a plea deal in his marijuana possession case. The 29-year-old Shields pleaded no contest Monday in Brown County Circuit Court to a misdemeanor charge of possessing marijuana — and a count of possessing drug paraphernalia was dropped. Officers went to Shields’ Green Bay area home last October after learning that he got a package from Colorado where marijuana use is legal. When the Brown County Drug Task Force knocked on the door, they said Shields greeted them while smoking a marijuana cigar — and officers found more pot in his apartment. Shields suffered his fifth concussion since college when he got hurt in last fall’s season opener — he never played after that — and the Packers let him go in February.
