TAMPA, Fla. -- Former NFL wide receiver Donald "Reche" Caldwell is facing a drug charge.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office reported that Caldwell was pulled over early Thursday after a deputy ran a license-plate check on his pickup truck and found that the ex-player had a suspended driver's license.
The deputy pulled over Caldwell and had the vehicle impounded. Deputies reported finding a plastic baggie with a small amount of marijuana next to the driver's seat.
Caldwell was charged with marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license. He was released on $750 bail.
Jail records didn't list an attorney for Caldwell.
