Texas Rangers catcher Geovany Soto was arrested Wednesday night in Grapevine on a marijuana possession charge.
Soto, 31, was pulled over for speeding around 10 p.m. in the 3500 block of Ira E. Woods Avenue, said Grapevine police spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling.
He has been charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana under 2 ounces. Eberling said Soto was cooperative during the arrest.
Soto is free on a $500 bail. The Tarrant County district attorney’s office filed his charges Friday. Soto has not selected a defense attorney.
Texas Rangers officials declined to comment on the arrest.
“We are aware of the situation,” team spokesman John Blake said.
Soto has been recovering from knee surgery and remains on the team’s disabled list.
