Things aren’t looking too good for Eagles wide receiver and kick returner, Josh Huff, 25. The NFL star was pulled over by police on the Walt Whitman Bridge in New Jersey, Tuesday morning, [Nov. 1], according authorities in multiple reports. In legal documents obtained by NJ Advance Media, Josh was initially pulled over for speeding, and issued with three separate citations — DUI, speeding and obstructed view because of tinted windows — In addition to carrying an illegal firearm that he did not have a permit for.
The gun in possession was reportedly a silver and black Smith and Wesson 9 mm handgun, that was unloaded with six hollow point bullets, according to the docs. He apparently does not have a permit to carry the gun. However, other reports claim he had a permit for the gun in Texas, only.
Police allegedly smelled the marijuana coming from inside the car and inquired about the odor, according to the legal papers. That is when Huff reportedly handed over a container with a reported amount of less than 50 grams of weed. Once that had happened, the complaint warrant reportedly stated to the officer that he had a gun in the driver side door.
