NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Kelly Goodman and Jamarcus Randle are facing felony drug charges after they brought 220lbs of marijuana to a Nashville hotel room, according to police.

In a police affidavit, Goodman, 39, and Randle, 30, are accused of bringing four large pieces of luggage stuffed with marijuana to the Red Roof Inn on the 500-block of Claridge Drive. Police said this happened on June 1st.
