Florida WR Antonio Callaway cited for drug possession
Florida WR Antonio Callaway was cited for possession of marijuana after a traffic stop in Gainesville on May 13.
Callaway had 7 grams of marijuana in his pants and another 5.4 grams were found in his vehicle at the time of the stop, according to a police report obtained by SEC Country’s Ryan Young. The traffic stop was originated by the Gainesville Police Department for an alleged seat belt violation.
Here’s a look at the description of the incident from the police report:
The police records indicate that both Callaway and Kendrick Williams, a 40-year-old male who was also in the vehicle, claimed ownership of the drugs. There is a court date for the offense set for June 6 at the Alachua County Criminal Courthouse.
This is not Callaway’s first brush with the law, as he was named in a Title IX lawsuit last year in an alleged sexual assault case. He was ultimately found not responsible in that case. Though during the proceedings on that case he did admit to usage of marijuana:
Callaway and his accuser both admitted he was high on marijuana during the incident, but indicated he had no interest in sexual contact and named his accuser as the aggressor.
“I was so stoned, I had no interested in having sex with anyone,” Callaway stated, according to the hearing report.
The junior wideout caught 54 passes for 721 yards and 3 touchdowns last season. He has 1,399 yards receiving in his two-year Gators career.
