An off-season not without some controversy already in Gainesville just got some more with news Thursday morning that star wideout Antonio Callaway was cited for marijuana possession early Saturday morning.

Here’s more on the police report from May 13th:

As the item states, Callaway had a previous blemish during his freshman year 2015, when he was questioned in a sexual assault case and admitted to having smoked marijuana in and around the time of the alleged incident. He was eventually cleared in the assault investigation.

Callaway is regarded as Florida’s top deep threat offensive weapon coming back this season and is also an outstanding return specialist, too. He battled a thigh bruise in the middle of last season and had only three TDs a year ago, but is being counted on heavily this fall.

Just Wednesday, the Alachua County State Attorneys office elected not to file charges against former Gator now Cleveland Browns rookie defensive tackle Caleb Brantley in an April incident.

Brantley, was accused to have punched a female, but the charge could not be substantiated by the accuser, who was drunk, or by witnesses who were there.

Meanwhile, because he was only a passenger in the vehicle during the incident, Callaway’s citation will likely be pleaded down or all the way out with community service, etc.

It’s unclear, and probably won’t be for months, if Coach Jim McElwain will discipline Callaway at all, including for the opening 2017 game with Michigan.
