Florida CB Jenkins arrested on pot charges again
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been charged with marijuana possession for the second time this year.
A Gainesville police report says an officer spotted the 22-year-old sitting in a parked car, smoking what the officer later found to be a marijuana cigar.
He was charged early Saturday with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, a misdemeanor. He was released after signing a notice to appear in court May 12.
Jenkins was arrested on the same charge in January, for which he accepted a plea deal and paid $316. He was also arrested in May 2009 during a downtown fight. He signed a deferred prosecution agreement, agreeing to probation and community service.
University officials could not be immediately reached on Saturday for comment.
