After being cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession of less than 20 grams on Jan. 22, Florida Gators cornerback Janoris Jenkins was cited again for the same charge early Saturday morning and given a notice to appear.
According to a Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman, Jenkins attempted to leave his car in a parking lot at 104 N. Main St. in downtown Gainesville at about 12:45 a.m.
A police officer noticed a “burning marijuana cigar” inside the center console of his car, cited Jenkins and gave him a notice to appear.
His court date is set for May 12 at 9 a.m.
UF spokesman Steve McClain could not be reached for comment.
According to Alachua County court records, Jenkins reached a plea agreement for his Jan. 22 arrest for misdemeanor marijuana possession on March 18. He paid $316 in court costs and adjudication was withheld.
Head coach Will Muschamp stated publicly after the January arrest that the matter would be “handled internally.”
Jenkins was also charged with disorderly conduct and affray and resisting arrest without violence on May 30, 2009 after an incident in Gainesville that led to him being tased. The affray charges were dropped because the evidence did not constitute a criminal offense, according to court records. He reached a deferred prosecution agreement on the resisting arrest charge.
