Le'Veon Bell was arrested for a DUI and marijuana possession on Wednesday. The Steelers' other running back, LeGarrette Blount, also faces marijuana possession charges.

Charges have officially been filed against Steelers running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Bell faces a marijuana possession charge and Bell faces a marijuana possession charge and a DUI charge following their arrest on Wednesday.

The pair, along with a female in the car, were arrested after Ross Township Police in Pittsburgh smelled marijuana coming from the black Camaro that Bell was driving. Bell and Blount had 20 grams of marijuana on them at the time of their arrest, according to Dunlap, who added that they were being "cooperative" with police.

Both running backs are expected to play in Thursday night's preseason game.
