NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — New Orleans Saints three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Marshon Lattimore has agreed to a plea deal involving a an illegal weapons charge dating back seven months ago in Cleveland.
Court documents show Lattimore was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed weapon – a loaded Glock 19 handgun located inside his vehicle during a traffic stop. As part of the deal, the 25-year-old from Ohio State will serve no jail time, but he will have to pay a $1,000 fine.
