An Indianapolis Colts running back has pleaded not guilty to a marijuana possession charge in western Ohio.

Preble County court officials say a Dayton attorney filed the plea Tuesday for Ahmad (AH'-mahd) Bradshaw.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says Bradshaw was stopped for a traffic violation on Interstate 70 this month. He was charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of a small amount of marijuana and with following too closely behind another vehicle in his Cadillac.

A court deputy clerk says the citations had been payable by fines without a court appearance. A pretrial hearing has been scheduled for Feb. 25.

The 28-year-old former New York Giants player had 725 total yards and eight touchdowns in an injury-shortened 2014 Colts season.
