|Jonathan Babineaux was arrested after a traffic stop in Georgia|
A Gwinnett County, Georgia officer pulled over Babineaux and another man -- 25-year-old Aaron Robinson Minneapolis -- then smelled pot. A search of the Cadillac Escalade revealed three bags containing a total of 40 grams.
But while possession seems clear, the distribution charge is a little hard to buy...

The player's also been charged with having no tag light and driving without a license and an expired tag.
This isn't the first round of trouble for Baineaux. In 2007, he was charged with animal cruelty for killing his girlfriend's pit bull. The official ruling was blunt-force trauma.
But that case was dismissed nine months later after it was proven that the dog had a history of unprovoked attacks, and that he was worried about the safety of his 5-month-old daughter.
