Green Bay Packers tight end Lance Kendricks was cited for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia during a September traffic stop, and TMZ Sports released video of the incident Tuesday.

Kendricks was pulled over after going 81 mph in a 70 mph zone, and when informed by an officer that it smelled like weed in his vehicle, he admitted to possessing marijuana:

Per TMZ Sports, the stop occurred in Appleton, Wisconsin, on Sept. 2 after Kendricks had attended a game at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin.

During the stop, one officer could be heard telling her partner, "You're not gonna wanna do this ... he's a Packers player."

TMZ Sports first reported Kendricks' citation on Saturday, noting that police found "a Louis Vuitton bag with a black glass container with a green leafy substance, two packs of rolling papers, and a blue grinder."

Although Kendricks initially denied possessing marijuana, he eventually admitted to having some in his glove box.

Kendricks is in the midst of his first season with the Packers after spending the first six seasons of his NFL career with the Los Angeles Rams.

The 2011 second-round pick's best season came in 2012, when he reeled in 42 receptions for 519 yards and four touchdowns.

So far this season, Kendricks has made 10 receptions for 140 yards and one score in 11 games.
