Gators complete rare weed quadruple play

So far this year, three Florida Gator football players have been cited/arrested for possession of marijuana... oops. Check that.

Better make it an even four.

As first reported by Jason Lieser the Palm Beach Post, and later confirmed by the Orlando Sentinel, 2011 signee De’Ante Saunders was arrested back in late May and charged with misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. There were no details given as to what actually led to the arrest, other than, ya know, possessin’ pot.

The school is aware of the incident, and any punishment was handled internally.

The cornerback was an early enrollee this year and participated in spring practice.

Star cornerback Janoris Jenkins was arrested twice in a three-month span earlier this year for possession and was dismissed following the second incident, which was actually his third brush with the law during his time in Gainesville. Additionally, linebacker Chris Martin and defensive end Kendric Johnson were arrested during separate incidents in January for having weed on their person. The former left UF in June, while the latter is still a member of the program.
