San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum is facing charges for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia use after being stopped for speeding in Vancouver, Wash., last week
Lincecum, who is a native of Bellevue, Wash., and a former star at the University of Washington, was driving northbound on Interstate 5 through Vancouver on Oct. 30 when he was pulled over for doing 74 mph in a 60-mph zone.
When he was pulled over, the officer smelled the marijuana and asked Lincecum to hand it over.
The pitcher produced a bag with 3.3 ounces of marijuana from his glove box.
Lincecum was cited and released. He paid $122 for the speeding violation. He is expected to be arraigned on Nov. 23 in Clark County District Court in Vancouver on the misdemeanor drug charge.
