METAIRIE – New Orleans Saints player Ebuka “David” Onyemata faces a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession after Jefferson Parish police found marijuana, THC oil, edibles, and hemp powder in his Elmwood apartment.
Deputies received a tip that there would be “a quantity of marijuana products” at an apartment at the 5300 block of Citrus Boulevard in River Ridge, according to the JPSO.
A search warrant was executed at the apartment on January 29, and Onyemata was issued a summons and arrested.
Onyemata cooperated with the detectives, according to the JPSO.
He’s the second Saints player to be arrested since a missed call set up a premature end to the team’s championship season.
Saints cornerback P.J. Williams was arrested and charged with DWI on January 22 after deputies spotted him driving 80 mph in a 50 mph zone on the Crescent City Connection Bridge around 1:10 a.m.
