Drug charges filed against Utah State football player

LOGAN — Drug charges have been filed against a Utah State football player who was arrested, after a deputy reported seeing the 23-year-old smoking marijuana inside his car.

On Tuesday, prosecutors filed two charges against Jaren Colston-Green. They include possession or use of a controlled substance and use or possession of drug paraphernalia, both class B misdemeanors. He is scheduled to appear in Logan City Justice Court on January 24.

Green was arrested on December 4 on suspicion of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. He was released from jail after posting $1,360 bail.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Peterson said Green was the driver of a car, parked late that night near 2025 Deercrest Lane in Logan. As the deputy pulled up alongside the vehicle, he witnessed the suspect smoking what appeared to be a joint.

The deputy reported smelling marijuana coming from the car when Green rolled the vehicle’s window down.

Peterson said Green was given a field sobriety test and failed. When deputies searched the vehicle they found marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Green is a junior from Tallahassee, Florida. He transferred to USU from Arizona Western College.
