Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has twice been arrested since January on marijuana charges, including on Saturday. But he’s not alone.
Redshirt freshman Chris Martin and redshirt sophomore Kedric Johnson were also hit with misdemeanor marijuana possession charges, according to The Palm Beach Post. Neither player’s arrest was known previously.
Janoris Jenkins was arrested for a second time because of marijuana possession.
Gainesville police arrested Martin on Jan. 29 after officers smelled the marijuana coming from his vehicle. Martin is expected to compete for a starting job at linebacker or defensive end. Johnson, a backup linebacker, was arrested on Jan. 9 after an officer pulled him over for speeding and smelled marijuana. He showed them two grams of the drug in his glove compartment, according to the police report obtained by The Palm Beach Post.
Both players agreed to deferred prosecution and the cases did not go to trial.
On Saturday, Jenkins was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams. He has a May 12 court date. In January, officers caught him with the drug in a bathroom at a nightclub. He pleaded no contest and agreed to deferred prosecution.
The combination of arrests does not give first-year coach Will Muschamp a good start. However, it continues a history of arrests in the program. Under Urban Meyer, there were 25 players arrested in six seasons.
