Florida WR Antonio Callaway cited for pot possession

Share

He has a court appearance scheduled for June 6.

Gainesville police smelled marijuana upon stopping Callaway and Kendrick Williams for a seatbelt violation on Saturday morning, and discovered seven grams of marijuana in Callaway's trousers, per a police report cited by the Tampa Bay Times. No doubt, Florida head coach Jim McElwain likely woke up Sunday morning to one of the dreaded offseason phone calls that no coach wants to receive after hearing this news.

The report states officers detected the smell of marijuana in the auto and during a search found about seven grams of the drug in Callaway's pocket. Both Callaway and Williams claimed the drugs. Callaway was in a auto with another person, Kendrick Williams, when police discovered the drugs. GPD spokesman Ben Tobias told The Sun UF tight end C'yontai Lewis was the driver. Lewis was not mentioned in the police report.

Williams has an extensive arrest record that includes convictions for criminal mischief in 2002, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana in 2006 and two counts of battery in 2007. Several other cases were dropped or transferred to other courts. He totaled 54 catches for 721 yards and three scores last season, as the Gators won their second straight SEC East championship. He is considered UF's most dynamic offensive weapon.

He was suspended from the team before the 2016 season because of a student conduct investigation that also involved former Florida quarterback Treon Harris. He was cleared and returned to school last summer. In the hearing report involving the case, Callaway admitted to marijuana use, saying, "I was so stoned, I had no interested in having sex with anyone".
