According to Miami-Dade police records, Elam was booked at 3:45 a.m. today on charges of possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis, possession of cannabis with the intent to sell or deliver, and possession of a controlled substance.
Police say they initially pulled Elam over for reckless driving and found 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone in his vehicle.
Elam was an All-American at Florida in 2012. He has been sidelined by multiple injuries and been considered a bust since the Ravens chose him in the first round of the 2013 draft.
There isn’t a good time for a serious drug arrest. But, with Elam about to be hitting the free agent market next month, this was a particularly bad one.
