Tim Lincecum Cited for Marijuana Possession

Tim Lincecum Cited for Marijuana Possession SEATTLE — San Francisco Giants
star pitcher Tim Lincecum is facing misdemeanor marijuana charges
following a traffic stop in his home state.

Washington State Patrol spokesman
Steve Schatzel said Thursday that the 2008 Cy Young Award winner and
former star at the University of Washington was pulled over for
speeding on Interstate 5 about four miles north of the Oregon border on
Oct. 30.

An officer approached Lincecum’s 2006
Mercedes and smelled marijuana. Schatzel says Lincecum immediately
complied with a request to hand over the drug and a marijuana pipe.

The amount measured was 3.3 grams. Schatzel says police consider that a small amount for personal use.

Lincecum was fined a total of $622
for driving at 74 mph in a 60-mph zone, and for possession of marijuana
and drug paraphernalia.
