This afternoon, we put up this post about the reports that Eagles receiver Josh Huff was arrested Tuesday morning for speeding across the Walt Whitman bridge, while in possession of a gun and marijuana.
Since then, further details have emerged about the case. To keep you as informed as possible, we’re putting together a post here to make sure no details go unmentioned. The events and reports are listed in reverse chronological order.
Tuesday evening: the Delaware River Port Authority releases the criminal complaint filed against Huff, which picked up by multiple news organizations.
Here are a few details obtained from the DRPA complaint, from Philly Mag’s David Gambacorta:
Huff allegedly did not have a permit to carry in New Jersey, which the officer wrote is a “crime of the second degree,” which can bring a prison sentence of up to five years. The hollow-point bullets were in a magazine next the gun; possessing the bullets was listed as a crime of the fourth degree. The DRPA wrote in an email that a criminal summons was issued to Huff for possessing marijuana under 50 grams, along with two warrants for unlawful possession of a weapon and prohibited weapons/devices.
He was also hit with a traffic summons for DUI, speeding and obstructed view because his car has tinted windows. Huff’s bail was set at $25,000, and he is scheduled for a court date in Camden County on November 15th, two days after the Eagles play the Atlanta Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field.
Tuesday afternoon: A source tells NBC Philadelphia (reported here by CSN Philly) that Huff was going 63 MPH in a 45 MPH zone, and that Huff only had a permit to carry the firearm in Texas, not New Jersey, where he was pulled over by police.
Tuesday, 1:07 PM: The Eagles release a statement:
