Giants' Tim Lincecum fined for drug possession

January 19, 2010 | 12:37 pm

Tim It appears San Francisco Giants starter Tim Lincecum won't have to pay too much for his little run-in with the law.

The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner was ordered by a Washington state judge this morning to pay $513 to resolve marijuana-related charges against him stemming from an Oct. 30 traffic stop.

Lincecum initially was charged with two misdemeanor counts of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. Both charges were later reduced to civil infractions.

So barring any more unforeseen traffic stops, Lincecum probably will continue to torment the Dodgers' hitters next season.
