Pot charge dropped against Florida CB

LSU v Florida Getty Images

Florida cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy found himself in some off-the-field trouble earlier this month when he arrested and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Fortunately for Purifoy, he has been cleared of his charge for a lack of evidence, according to the Gainesville Sun.

“He never had any marijuana on him, therefore he was not guilty of possession of marijuana,” Purifoy’s attorney told the paper.

The original story from 247Sports stated that Purifoy was a passenger in a vehicle stopped for a traffic violation. Once pulled over, another passenger attempted to throw a cannabis cigarette out the window. The officer on the scene also identified ”a baggie containing 2.5 grams of cannabis” near the car’s emergency brake.

Sounds as though the only thing Purifoy was guilty of was riding in the wrong car.

Purifoy finished the 2012 season 51 tackles and three forced fumbles.

    The old “that’s not mine” defense. How orginal…

    I found a video of the incident in question.

    Shocking really, seeing as the Florida AD has the Gainsville PD bought and paid for.

    I think that’s 45 for their last 45 in Gators getting their charges dropped.

    Supposed to say “original”. Hooked on phonics doesn’t work for me.

    Oscar Pistorius must be ticked that he wasn’t arrested in Gainesville. All would be forgiven.

    yea cause murder and pot charge are the same. shouldnt u be more worried about Miami and the mess they are.

    Oh yeah canetic, since murder and a 2.5 g bag of weed are in the same ballpark. Ironic that criticism is coming from someone whose city’s skyline was created through drug trafficking and murder. CFT provides a good service of letting scUM and semen hole trolls voice their little opinions. Now go back to getting every orifice examined by the NCAA.

    How about backing up that statement with a little proof?

    Gatorprof is CORRECT. The Gators have had a ton of arrests but the charges have been pretty fairly handled by the authorities!!!! That’s not to say Urban didn’t look the other way more than a few times….

    Don’t confuse the “Urban Renewal era” with Muschamp’s recruits because he won’t tolerate ANY nonsense. The first thing he did was send a future first round draft pick “packing”–Jelani Jenkins.

    It’s easy to blindly throw stuff out at schools but there are only a few on here that do their homework before starting their “smear campaigns of the day!!”

    Bama fan here, I got your back Gator fans!! Those same guys troll just about every SEC article because they have an inferiority complex about their own conferences…Their motto is, “if you can’t beat em’, slander the shit out of em’… Anyways, it seems like Muschamp has really straightened things up down there since Urban Meyer left. He seems like a good coach and a good guy all around. The future is definitely bright for Florida fans, that’s for sure…

    Btw, looking forward to playing you guys coming up in College B-ball, #1 vs #2, gonna be a good game…I hope…

    @Blitz, I think you meant Janoris Jenkins. Which was a future second rounder but certainly would have been a first rounder if he hadn’t gotten in trouble.
