Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway, a rising junior and one the Gators' top playmakers, was cited Wednesday by Gainesville Police for misdemeanor marijuana possession, Alachua County (Fla.) court records show.
According to police (via The Associated Press), the smell of marijuana coming from a Mercedes SUV during a traffic stop led to a search of Callaway, 20, who was a passenger in the vehicle driven by Kendrick Williams, 40. Police found 7 grams of marijuana on Callaway, who admitted it was his. He was cited for possession of not more than 20 grams of marijuana and scheduled to appear in court June 6.
Callaway was suspended last spring after being accused of sexual battery by a female student in late 2015. During a code of conduct hearing about the allegations, Callaway, in his defense, said he "was so stoned [he] had no interest in having sex with anyone."
He eventually was reinstated in August after being cleared in an independent Title IX investigation and caught 54 passes for 721 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore.
However, after Callaway's statement in the code of conduct hearing, coach Jim McElwain said in the summer that there would be consequences if Callaway's marijuana usage "becomes habitual."
Regarding Callaway's latest incident, school spokesman Steve McClain said (via the Gainesville Sun), “Coach McElwain is aware of it and it is being dealt with.”
