… Cops Say

Broncos WR Carlos Henderson was arrested for possession of marijuana after a routine traffic stop on Sunday … where he tried (and failed) to eat the evidence, according to cops.
It all went down Sunday afternoon in West Monroe, Louisiana … when Henderson was a passenger in a car pulled over for speeding.
Cops noted a strong smell of weed coming from the car … but Carlos and the driver, Alejandra Aviles-Jimenez, both denied possessing or smoking weed inside the vehicle.
But when a search of the car turned up weed around the passenger seat and what appeared to be the remainder of a joint, cops checked their tongues — and Henderson’s “contained a thick green residue.”
Carlos said he smoked earlier in the day, but insisted he did not try eating any weed before (or during) the stop.
Cops weren’t buying it … and booked the former Louisiana Tech star, while letting Aviles-Jimenez go with a speeding citation. Henderson was later released on bond.
In a statement, the Broncos said they’re “aware of the issue involving Carlos Henderson and are gathering more information.”
