Misdemeanor Pot Citation For Gators’ Jenkins

Less than a month after announcing that he would return to Florida for his senior season, Gator cornerback Janoris Jenkins was arrested for misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.

Jenkins was found to have a small, clear bag of weed in his possession in the bathroom of a Gainesville night club on Saturday.  The player was cited on the spot and was not taken into custody.

Jenkins was also arrested in May of 2009 for resisting arrest without violence when he and several others were involved in a fight at another Gainesville night club.  (Sidenote — It might be time for Jenkins to avoid the night club scene.)  His record was later cleared of the charge.

Welcome to Gainesville, Will Muschamp.  Jenkins is the first Gator to get into trouble since the hiring of Florida’s new coach.  There were 30 arrests under the watch of Urban Meyer.

“We are aware of the incident with Janoris Jenkins and will handle it internally at this time,” Muschamp said yesterday. 

If Muschamp wants to curb some of the trouble his players get into he might think about tweaking his program’s ridiculous five-strikes drug policy.  No policy in the SEC is weaker… which is likely one reason that a member of UF’s 2006 national championship team estimated that 75% of his teammates smoked weed.
