    Florida freshman cornerbackJalen Tabor was cited for marijuana possession of less than 20 grams on May 27, a misdemeanor, according to a Gainesville Police Department incident report. Tabor was a five-star recruit and Florida's top-rated prospect in the 2014 recruiting class.

    According to the GPD report, Tabor was stopped near the University House apartment complex at 725 NW 13th St. on May 27 at 1:22 a.m. when an officer smelled marijuana coming from a vehicle he was a passenger in.

    "A probable cause search of [the defendant] yielded a small baggie of cannabis which fell out of his shorts when [the defendant] exited the vehicle," the police report signed by officer C.M. Futrell stated.

    Tabor denied possession of the marijuana after being read his Miranda rights, according to the report.

    On June 3, Tabor reached a deferred prosecution agreement on the misdemeanor marijuana charge, according to Alachua County court records. Tabor must avoid breaking any federal or state laws and county or municipal ordinances for six months. In addition, he must pay $100 in prosecution fees to the Office of the State Attorney and donate $150 to Project Payback or serve 12 hours of community service in order to have the charge dismissed.

    Muschamp confirmed that Tabor has already been disciplined by him and the school.

    That's the thing.

    Young black men driving around at 1:30am would never get pulled over, right? So you're smoking in the car? Just not using common sense. Party at home. Or at least keep it legal if you're out.

    He should get a one-gamer for this offense as I understand young kids make mistakes and since this wasn't some sort of violent offense, but if he gets busted for pot one more time, he should get at least a five game suspension, unless it's something really, really stupid and he should be gone imo. Third strike, no matter what he does he should be booted without even thinking about it.

    Well, to me, it doesn't matter. The last thing I ever want is for UF to turn into fsu. I get it that he's a young kid who made his first mistake, and not a bad one so-to-speak. He should sit one game for breaking team rules. If he screws up with pot again, 5 game sit-down imo, unless it's a more serious offense like a violent crime or felony, then he should get booted.

    I continue to ask... WTF is a Freshman (read under age) kid, let alone a football player (during Summer A), doing out with anyone at 1:20AM? Granted, there are no bed checks, but COME ON MAN! Didn't anyone teach you that only bad things will happen when you're out that late! Sounds like someone needs to be running some stadium stairs for the next week!

    Why are athletes (usually) really dumb? I think weed should be legal, and I don't even use it, but rules are rules and it's so easy to stay away from. It's not addictive or anything, just a stupid habit that needs to be broken for a short period of time. I agree with graygator
