Four players from the Philadelphia Eagles have been in legal trouble over the past week. On Friday, Nov. 16, three Eagles players, safety Terrence Carroll, defensive back Darrel Crutchfield and lead rusher Correll Buckhalter were detained on charges of marijuana possession.

Eagles Coach Andy Reid suspended Buckhalter and Crutchfield, but released Carroll from the team. The players were taken into police custody when officers detected the smell of marijuana in their sport-utility vehicle during a routine stop. Officers found a small amount of marijuana upon search of the vehicle.

Carroll was charged with misdemeanor possession and released. Buckhalter and Crutchfield were released without charges.

Meanwhile, safety Damon Moore has been charged with animal abandonment. Police say that Moore abandoned his three-month-old Rottweiler puppy in a soccer field near his home in Voorhees N.J.

Police and the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals traced a microchip embedded in the dog to Moore. Moore bought the dog from a mall pet shop.

“I made a bad decision,” Moore said in an interview, stating that he never harmed or hurt the dog.

“I wish I would’ve taken more time to think more clearly and now I have to deal with the consequences from Andy (Reid) and the law. I can’t go into detail.

“I just wish I could’ve re-thought my decisions and used better judgment,” Moore told reporters.

Reid responded a bit more harshly to the media, stating, “I don’t like it. I expect more out of guys than the things that have happened.”

Reid told his team to act like they are number one both on and off the field, and to conduct themselves in a better manner.
