Jury selection begins Monday in the trial for ex-NFL player Kevin Ware Jr. for drugs and weapons charges.
This is just the latest development in months of legal troubles for Ware. He’s also charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend, Taylor Pomaski.
He’s being tried on Monday for drugs and weapons charges that stem from an incident that occurred in April 2021.
Ware was pulled over for speeding — allegedly going 115 mph.
When a deputy searched his vehicle, a loaded AK-47, along with other guns and drugs like cocaine and meth, were allegedly discovered.
Ware is a convicted felon and was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and possession with intent to deliver/manufacture a controlled substance.
He was out on bond for this incident when Pomaski, his 29-year-old girlfriend, disappeared from his Spring home.
Ware is now charged with her murder in Harris County — accused of brutally murdering her and burning her body, which was found a few months later in a ditch in north Harris county.
Monday’s trial for the drugs and weapons charges begins at 9 a.m.
