Marcus Camby Has Marijuana Possession Charges Dropped

Good news for Marcus Camby, as he skates on recent weed charges (the same can’t be said for his buddy, though.) Reports the Oregonian: “The marijuana possession charges against Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby have been dropped by the Brazoria County (Texas) district attorney’s office and his criminal record has been cleared. Camby and Kendal Johnson were arrested last month after police discovered a small amount of marijuana in Camby’s car during a traffic stop in Pearland, Texas. But after weighing evidence — and accepting a guilty plea from Johnson — Camby has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. ‘For the record, Marcus Camby did not get charged with a crime and Marcus Camby did not possess any marijuana,’ Randall Novak, Camby’s Houston-based attorney, said. Johnson, 24, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a Class B Misdemeanor possession charge and paid a $1,500 fine.”

    And that is how you make your homeboy take a charge… There is a lesson for all celebrities here. If your homie won’t take a charge for you to protect the gravy train, then he shouldn’t be riding in the whip. LOL.
