Eagles' Josh Huff arrested on gun, marijuana charges

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Josh Huff was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with possession of a 9 mm handgun without a permit and having a small amount of marijuana after he was pulled over for speeding.

Huff was stopped on the Walt Whitman Bridge, which connects Philadelphia with Camden County, N.J, at around 11 a.m. ET, according to a court complaint.

"We are aware of the incident today involving Josh Huff,” Eagles spokesperson Derek Boyko said in a statement provided to USA TODAY Sports. “At this point, we are gathering more information."

In addition charges for possessing the gun without a permit and for the magazine with six hollow-point bullets, he also faces a disorderly persons offense for having less than 50 grams of marijuana, police told the Associated Press.

Messages left by USA TODAY Sports with the Camden County Prosecutor’s office were not immediately returned.

Huff was a third-round pick in 2014 and one of former Eagles coach Chip Kelly's players at Oregon. He has 13 catches for 72 yards and a receiving touchdown so far this season. He also returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown in the Eagles' 21-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 7.
