Florida freshman cornerback Jalen Tabor was cited for marijuana possession on May 27, 247Sports' Thomas Goldkamp reports. Goldkamp also notes that Tabor reached a deferred prosecution agreement on June 3. The Gainesville Police Department report on Tabor's citation notes that he was arrested shortly before 2 a.m. on May 27 at 725 NW 13th Street, which is the address of the University House apartment complex. This is the "Narrative" portion of the report. On the above date, time and location, DEF was the front seat passenger of a vehicle lawfully stopped after LEO smelled the odor of cannabis emanating from the vehicle. A probable cause search of DEF yielded a small baggie of cannabis which fell out of his shorts when DEF exited the vehicle. I identified the cannabis by sight and smell based on my training and experience. Post Miranda, DEF denied possession of the cannabis. The police report also indicates that Tabor was "ARR TO INTK" — which could mean arrested to the intake facility at the Alachua County Jail, though the date associated with that is May 28, which makes no sense with that interpretation — and that he was given a notice to appear in court on the morning of June 19. Whether or not Tabor was "arrested," a citation is technically an arrest; this one is Florida's first since Antonio Morrison was arrested for barking at a police dog and resisting arrest on July 21, 2013. Possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor of the first degree under Florida law, and punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
