Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd is facing two drug charges after police found paraphernalia in a wrecked auto registered to him. THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is the active chemical in marijuana that produces a high.

WPXI's Catherine Varnum is reporting that on July 12 at around 3 AM, police found a crashed Mercedes-Benz on State Route 837 in Jefferson Hills.

The friend, Armani Ford, 22, of Clairton, was also charged Wednesday with possessing a vape pen and not being licensed to do so, the same two drug charges Boyd faces.

Later that day, Boyd showed up to where his auto had been towed trying to retrieve his vehicle, but was advised to first make a statement with police. Police later found out that the auto was registered to Boyd.

Channel 11's Catherine Varnum has learned Boyd went to police two days later with his mother and told them the other man was driving the vehicle, and he was not in it at the time of the crash.
