University of Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway was cited for marijuana possession Saturday morning by the Gainesville Police Department.
Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times confirmed the news Thursday based on a review of Alachua County court records. The Gators star is due in court June 6.
Court records show police conducted a search after smelling marijuana during a traffic stop. They found approximately seven grams of the drug on Callaway and 5.4 grams in the vehicle, which both the Florida player and another individual in the car, Kendrick Williams, claimed.
"Coach [Jim] McElwain is aware of it and it is being dealt with," said Florida Spokesman Steve McClain, per Robbie Andreu of Gatorsports.com.
Mark Long of the Associated Press reported in August the Miami native previously admitted marijuana use in a student code of conduct hearing in 2016. He said he "was so stoned (he) had no interest in having sex with anyone" in response to a sexual assault allegation.
McElwain said at that time he would attempt to help his receiver, but he added there would be punishment if the problems continued.
"If there are some issues, find help," McElwain told Long. "If it becomes habitual, then there are some consequences. At the same time, through the stuff we do, through the education piece, I'm here to help him. And I'm here to make sure if there's something there that isn't a one-off, but obviously is something that is going to be a huge problem, which you're obviously aware of some of the cases here over the years that have missed some things because of those details."
