Vols: John Kelly receives diversion for marijuana charge, Will Ignont charge to be dismissed

Former Tennessee running back John Kelly entered a guilty plea Tuesday and received judicial diversion, settling his misdemeanor drug possession charge stemming from an Oct. 24 traffic stop.

Kelly must pay a $250 fine and court costs. If Kelly fulfills the terms of his judicial diversion agreement during a probationary period of 11 months and 29 days, the guilty plea will be expunged from his record.

Tennessee linebacker Will Ignont was the passenger in the car Kelly was driving and faced a charge of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. Ignont, who also appeared in court Tuesday, received a pass disposition and will have his charge dismissed with court costs assessed.

Kelly and Ignont were suspended for the Kentucky game last season after Knoxville police said they found marijuana during a search of the vehicle following a traffic stop. Following the search, neither player claimed possession of the 4.6 grams of marijuana police say they found, along with a glass pipe, in the center console, according to an incident report.

The Los Angeles Rams selected Kelly last month in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. He decided to forgo his senior season at UT after rushing for 778 yards and tying for the team lead with 37 receptions as a junior.
