Buffalo Bills linebacker Nigel Bradham was told by Tonawanda Town Justice Daniel T. Cavarello that as long as he leads a law-abiding life for the next six months the marijuana violation and excessively tinted windows charge that were placed against him early on Aug. 19 will automatically be dismissed with no further court action.
The justice granted Bradham a six-month Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal of the charges.
Bradham, 23, his attorney, and Town Prosecutor Mario A. Giacobbe could not be reached for comment after the brief courtroom session. Bradham was pulled over by a Town of Tonawanda police officer about 2 a.m. Aug. 19, hours after he was a starting linebacker during the Bills preseason victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Bradham was charged when police smelled marijuana in his car and he turned over a bag of marijuana.
Bradham reportedly has been placed in a confidential NFL drug intervention program but as a first-time offender he did not face a suspension from the game.
