Reed arrested, charged with marijuana possession

JACKSON, Miss. -- Houston Rockets swingman
Justin Reed was
released from jail Wednesday after his arrest on a marijuana
charge.

Reed was arrested Tuesday night in Jackson. He posted $500 bond
early Wednesday and was released from the Hinds County jail, said
Capt. Ken Magee of the Hinds County Sheriff's Department.

Reed was charged with misdemeanor possession of less than an
ounce of marijuana, which carries a fine from $100 to $250. No date
has been set for his appearance in Hinds County court.

In June, Reed and point guard Mike James were traded from the
Minnesota Timberwolves to the Rockets in a deal that sent
Juwan Howard to Minnesota.

Reed, who played at Mississippi, averaged 2.6 points and 1.1
rebounds in 41 games last season for the Timberwolves.
