Former Louisville star forward Chane Behanan entered a not guilty plea to a marijuana possession citation in Jefferson County District Court today.

Behanan, who was kicked off the team this season for what he later admitted was repeated drug use, was cited near 17th and Broadway after the 2008 Scion he was riding in was pulled over for a traffic violation in early April, according to the arrest citation.

An officer approached the car and could smell the "strong odor of marijuana" in the car, according to the citation. The officer also discovered a marijuana cigarette in Behanan's lap.

Behanan was one of the top offensive rebounders in college basketball and toyed with the idea of playing professional ball after he left U of L. He declared for the NBA draft Monday.
