Florida Gators redshirt freshman defensive tackle Leon Orr received a written arrest on Jan. 10 and was given a notice to appear in court for misdemeanor possession of both marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to The Independent Florida Alligator.

Orr, who the police report notes granted an officer permission to search his dorm room, admitted to possessing under 20 grams of marijuana as well as a “glass pipe and rolling papers” after all of it was found by a member of the University Police Department.

The Alligator reports that it is not stated on the police report why officer Bradley Roberts was sent to Orr’s room to in the first place.

Orr is scheduled to face these chargers in court on Feb. 8 and is now the fifth player to be charged with possession of marijuana since head coach Will Muschamp began his stewardship of the football program one year ago.

Though Florida did not release a statement on the matter, Orr tweeted about the incident. “At the end of the day a mistake was made, and I’ve learned from it,” he wrote.

Orr played in all 13 games in 2011, registering 10 tackles, a sack and a pass defense.

    Ahhh and the beat goes on. Another off season and another pot charge which I’m sure will be the first of 3-5. It’s like these kids look at weed like beer and just say who cares!

    College kids all over the country smoke marijuana. Its just that the athletes have to be smarter than the regular students because often times they are targeted by the school’s public safety. This is minor to me, but Orr should realize as an athlete he has to be way more smarter with his decision making. I think he deserves to be suspended for the spring game at the most
