ST. MARTINVILLE, La. -- Former Dallas Cowboys star Nate Newton was arrested when police confiscated 213 pounds of marijuana from a van on a highway.

Newton and two others were charged Sunday with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, Trooper Willie Williams said Tuesday. A fourth person, arrested in a separate vehicle with $18,000, was charged with conspiracy to possess narcotics.

All four were in the St. Martin Parish Jail on Tuesday with bail set at $200,000 each.

Newton is a six-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman who helped Dallas win three Super Bowls. He spent 14 seasons in the NFL, 13 with Dallas. He retired last year after a season with Carolina.

Williams said a state police patrol pulled over a van for a traffic violation on Sunday about 6 a.m. east of Lafayette.

"The driver seemed nervous and gave consent to search the van," Williams said. He did not say who was driving.

Cardboard boxes filled with 213 pounds of marijuana were in the van, Williams said.

Newton, who lives in East Ellijay, Ga., was arrested along with Faye Cleveland, 46, and Marva Johnson Waye, 49, both of Jacksonville, Fla. All three were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

The driver of a pickup truck, Ricky Glenn Williams, 46, of Quinlan, Texas, was charged with conspiracy to possess narcotics, police said. The $18,000 that was in the truck with him was seized, the trooper said.

I still can't imagine having 213lbs..I mean, the guys who mow our lawn don't clear that much grass in a month..or two or three. And it sounds like two of his partners in crime were fifty-year-old ladies?

I just can't believe this. You would think he would know better but I guess not.
