The possession of cocaine charge has been dropped against Georgia Southern quarterback Shai Werts, his attorney said Thursday.
Al Means, the solicitor in the 11th Judicial Circuit including Saluda County, S.C., told Werts’ attorney, Townes Jones IV, that these kinds of charges would not be pressed on “his watch,” Jones said.
A native of nearby Clinton, Werts was charged July 31 with misdemeanor possession of cocaine and speeding after his 2016 silver Dodge Charger was clocked going 80 mph on Chappells Highway at 8:58 that evening.
Werts, the Eagles’ starting quarterback, was suspended from the team for two days before returning to practice on Sunday.
