GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy is facing a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession.
Purifoy, a rising junior from Pensacola, was arrested early Sunday after being stopped for a traffic violation.
He was riding in the back seat of car that was stopped for a right-of-way violation. Police discovered a small amount of marijuana (2.5 grams) in the car. Purifoy was given a notice to appear in court Wednesday. According to court records, his arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 21.
Purifoy played in all 13 games last season and was fourth on the team with 51 tackles. He had five pass breakups, three forced fumbles and two blocked kicks.
He is expected to play receiver during spring practice because Florida has just five scholarship receivers returning and depth in the secondary.
