Report: Bell Suspended 3 Games For 2014 DUI Arrest

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Le'Veon Bell has learned his fate from the NFL after a DUI arrest last August.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Bell has been suspended for three games stemming from the Aug. 20, 2014 incident.

Bell was arrested after a motorcycle officer in Ross Township smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle.

In February, Bell entered an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, received 15 months of probation and a 60-day license suspension.

According to Ross Township Police, Officer Sean Stafiej pulled the car over in the parking lot of Pool City along McKnight Road.

Police say Bell was driving, then-teammate LeGarrette Blount was in the front passenger seat and an unidentified female was in the back seat of the vehicle.

Investigators say Officer Stafiej also found a Ziploc-style bag containing about 20 grams of marijuana on the console.

Ross Township Police say the three "admitted to collectively possessing the bag of marijuana."

On Tuesday, Blount learned he would be suspended for one game for his role in the incident.
