Tim Lincecum, star pitcher of the San Francisco Giants and winner of the Cy Young pitching award, appeared in Clark County District Court this morning to resolve a marijuana charge.

As part of an agreement with prosecutors, Lincecum’s two charges of the use of drug paraphernalia and possessing marijuana were reduced to a civil infraction.

The civil infraction requires Lincecum to pay $513 and he had to pay for a speeding ticket.

Dressed in a dark gray suit, Lincecum’s case related to a traffic stop on Interstate 5 on Oct. 30 in which it is alleged that marijuana and paraphenelia were found. Lincecum was reportedly on his way to the Seattle area, his hometown, when he was stopped at mid-morning on Interstate 5 in Hazel Dell.

“I’ll try not to let this happen again, move forward and continue with my life,” Lincecum said.
