Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway has been cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession, according to Alachua County court records.

Callaway, 20, was a passenger in a black Mercedes SUV when Gainesville Police Department officers stopped the vehicle for a seatbelt violation on Saturday morning. According to the police report, officers smelled marijuana in the car driven by Kendrick Williams, 40, and found seven grams of the drug in Callaway's pocket during the search.

Callaway is scheduled to appear in court on June 6.

Florida released a statement saying that "Coach (Jim) McElwain is aware of it and it is being dealt with."

Callaway was suspended amid sexual battery allegations last spring, but was reinstated to the team in August after an independent hearing officer found Callaway not responsible of sexually assaulting a female student in December 2015.

Callaway reeled in 54 passes for 721 yards and three touchdowns during his sophomore season. Overall, he has 89 receptions for 1,399 yards and seven TDs in two seasons.
