Florida's Antonio Callaway, one of the top wide receivers in college football, has been cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession, according to Alachua County court records.

According to the report from the Gainesville Police Department, Callaway's vehicle was searched after officers smelled marijuana during a traffic stop.

Callaway and another man in the auto, 40-year-old Kendrick Williams, claimed ownership of another 5.4 grams found in the vehicle, the documents said. The police report said officers smelled marijuana in the vehicle and then found 7 grams of the drug in Callaway's pocket during a search.

With another game against MI looming as Florida's next, it will be curious to see whether that standard for punishment for a marijuana possession citation remains in effect.

Florida released a statement saying that "Coach (Jim) McElwain is aware of it and it is being dealt with".

Callaway was previously involved in a Title IX investigation at UF, which saw him suspended indefinitely during 2016 spring practices but eventually cleared of wrongdoing in the case as he returned to the team before fall camp.

"If there are some issues, find help", McElwain said in August.

Callaway and Williams' arraignment is scheduled for June 6 at 9 a.m. During the hearing, Callaway told the committee members he was high on marijuana at the time of the alleged assault and that he "so stoned I had no interest in having sex with anyone". If it becomes habitual, then there are some consequences. He totaled 54 catches for 721 yards and three scores last season, as the Gators won their second straight SEC East championship.
