The Redskins nearly made it out of town without anyone getting into trouble, but rookie cornerback Brashaud Breeland ruined that record.

He was cited by VCU police for possession of marijuana on Monday night, the last night the team was here in town.

A Redskins spokesman said the team is aware of the incident but isn’t making any further comment right now.

Under NFL rules, Breeland can be disciplined by the NFL for this, but since this is a first offense that punishment doesn’t figure to be too severe.

Breeland has a hearing scheduled for August 26th on the charge here in Richmond.
