Ex-Packers CB Sam Shields fined $500 in marijuana case

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

Former Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields will pay a $500 fine after pleading no contest to marijuana possession.
   The 29-year-old Shields changed his plea Monday after earlier pleading not guilty.
   USA Today Network-Wisconsin reports that a charge of possessing drug paraphernalia stemming from the Oct. 19 incident at his Green Bay-area home was dropped.
   Shields had faced up to six months in jail.
   A criminal complaint says officers went to Shields' home after he received a package from Colorado, where recreational use of marijuana is legal. The complaint says Shields acknowledged having marijuana in his home.
   Shields suffered his fourth concussion in the 2016 regular-season opener. He spent several months on injured reserve before the Packers released him in February.
