Well, that's not good.
The full details are here:
Redskins rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland was cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond on Monday, the night before the team ended its three-week training camp in the city.
Breeland, 22, was issued a summons for simple possession of marijuana at 10:40 p.m. by Edwin Alvarez, a VCU Police Department officer. No additional information was made available by a campus police department spokeswoman, citing pending adjudication, though the department's online crime log notes a drug violation under the same case number at the Sunoco gas station at 600 W. Grace Street.
A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 26 in Richmond.
Suffice to say, based on one text we received from a source the #Redskins are not very happy with Breeland right now. His star was on rise.

Breeland will most likely be fined by the league once he settles his case in court. He would then be place into the NFL's substance abuse program in the early stages of treatment which requires random testing for a set period of time. The Redskins can't suspend Breeland for the drug charge, and they are highly unlikely to cut this year's 4th Round pick unless there are other circumstances that haven't been reported. The team is obviously not happy with Breeland right now, but he has fans in the organization and as long as he stays clean and out of trouble, has a spot on the roster. Drama-free training camp....so close.
