"GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones was arrested in early October and faces several charges after a traffic stop in which he admitted to smoking marijuana.
"Jones, 22, has pleaded not guilty to counts of speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system, according to Wisconsin court records. The district attorney’s office for Brown County filed charges on Oct. 2, several days before Jones made his first start against the Dallas Cowboys.
"The arrest and subsequent charges previously had been unreported. The Packers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
"Coach Mike McCarthy said he was aware of the situation regarding Jones during his Monday morning news conference and had spoken to him about it after the incident.
"'He made a mistake,' McCarthy said."
