Son of Patriots coach placed on probation

WESTON

Stephen Belichick, 19, of Weston, son of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, was placed on probation for six months yesterday after being arrested Saturday in Weston on charges of marijuana possession, authorities said.

Belichick, who authorities said had no prior record and was found with less than a gram of the drug, was arraigned in Waltham District Court along with Jonathan Pizarro, 18, of Roxbury.

Pizarro, who also had no prior record, had several small plastic bags of the drug, police said. He was charged with attempt to distribute, officials said.

He is due back in court Dec. 7. The two were found about 9:25 p.m. inside Pizarro's car in a church parking lot on Winter Street by police on routine patrol.
