(Newser) – Famed Jets quarterback Joe Namath’s daughter was pulled over yesterday for doing 58mph in a 50mph zone, but things got a little tricky when the officer started sniffing around and smelled pot. The officer searched the car and found what the Palm Beach Post calls “a bag of leafy greens.” For good measure, Olivia Namath also had an open bottle of Captain Morgan and 11 Miller Lite bottles in her vehicle—and she's underage.

A more detailed inspection turned up around 200 grams of pot in the trunk. The 19-year-old “denied any knowledge” of the drugs, but also said no one had access to the trunk of her car. Two male passengers were in the vehicle. Namath faces two marijuana charges, and one of alcohol possession by a minor. (Read more Joe Namath stories.)
