Penn State quarterback Christian Veilleux has been charged with a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession, according to a report Tuesday by the Centre Daily Times.

Veilleux, a freshman who enrolled early in January, is one of three scholarship quarterbacks on the PSU roster, along with Sean Clifford and Ta’Quan Roberson. Veilleux participated in spring practice and showed promising signs during the Nittany Lions’ two open scrimmages at Beaver Stadium.

“Veilleux is pretty far along for a true freshman in terms of being able to operate what we’re asking them to do,” James Franklin said of the QB during the spring.

This is from the CDT report:

A backup Penn State quarterback was charged Monday after a university police officer said he found marijuana in the freshman’s apartment.

Christian Veilleux, 18, was charged with one misdemeanor count of possession of a small amount of marijuana. The university’s athletics department is aware of the charges, a spokesperson wrote in a statement Monday.

“These alleged actions do not reflect the values and standards of our program and will be addressed,” the department said. “We will not comment any further as this is an ongoing legal matter.”

Veilleux has a preliminary hearing July 21, per the CDT story.
