TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Houston Astros' outfielder Jordan Schafer has been arrested in Florida and charged with felony possession of marijuana.
According to an arrest report from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office, Schafer was arrested early Tuesday morning in Tampa after a traffic stop and was released on a $2,000 cash bond.
The 25-year-old Schafer was acquired from Atlanta as part of the trade for Michael Bourn in July. He hit .245 with one home run, six RBIs and seven stolen bases in 30 games for Houston after the trade. He appeared in 52 games with a .240 average and 15 stolen bases for the Braves this season.
The Astros declined to comment on Schafer's arrest.
