Zappiste: Justice égale pour tous !?

After an officer detected the smell of marijuana, the two-time All-Star complied with a request to turn over 3.3 grams of the substance and a pipe from the car's center console. Because the officer did not judge Lincecum to be impaired, he cited him and allowed him to continue.

Le double vainqueur du trophée Cy Young dans la Ligue nationale de baseball, Tim Lincecum, va défrayer une amende de 513$ US afin de se défaire des accusations de possession de marijuana auxquelles il était confrontées dans l'état de Washington.

Le lanceur des Giants de San Francisco faisait face à des accusations plus importantes, après avoir été intercepté sur la route, le 30 octobre dernier.

Lincecum a payé séparément une contravention pour excès de vitesse.

Giants ace Tim Lincecum faces misdemeanor charges for marijuana possession after he turned over a small amount of the substance during a traffic stop near the Washington-Oregon border on Oct. 30, Washington State police said.

The 2008 Cy Young Award winner also was cited for driving his 2006 Mercedes 74 mph along a 60 mph stretch of Interstate 5 near Hazel Dell, Wash., police said.

After an officer detected the smell of marijuana, the two-time All-Star complied with a request to turn over 3.3 grams of the substance and a pipe from the car's center console. Because the officer did not judge Lincecum to be impaired, he cited him and allowed him to continue.

Lincecum, 25, entered a plea of not guilty through his attorney Monday, according to court records obtained by The Associated Press. He is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 22 and faces fines of $622 for the misdemeanor charges, police said.

Lincecum, a Seattle native, did not return a text message seeking comment. His agent, Rick Thurman, was in contact with Giants officials but also did not return text and phone messages. Giants spokesman Jim Moorehead said the team was "still gathering information and has no comment at this time."

Lincecum's bust is unlikely to impact his career. Recreational drug use is not punishable under Major League Baseball's current testing policy, although any type of drug conviction can lead to more frequent testing for performance enhancers.
