Florida star wide receiver Antonio Callaway is facing disciplinary action from the school and the football program after being cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession this past weekend.

Callaway was cited early Saturday morning after a car in which he was a passenger was pulled over and the officer smelled marijuana, according to a Gainesville Police Department report.

A bag containing about seven grams of marijuana was found in Callaway’s front pocket.

Marijuana was also found on another passenger, 40-year-old Kendrick Williams. Williams and Callaway admitted the marijuana belonged to them, according to the report. A June 6 court case has been scheduled.

Callaway was the Gators’ leading receiver this past season with 54 catches for 721 yards and three touchdowns. He is considered UF’s most dynamic offensive weapon.

Callaway was suspended from school last spring while being investigated for an alleged sexual assault. He was cleared and returned to school last summer. During the investigation, Callaway told investigators that he was high on marijuana at the time of the alleged assault and was so stoned he had no interest in having sex.
