Florida defensive tackle Leon Orr has been arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Orr was cited Jan. 10 after a University Police Department officer searched his dorm room and found a ''baggy of a green leafy substance, a glass pipe and rolling papers'' on his desk and bedside table, according to a police report.

The substance was confirmed to be marijuana, police said, and Orr admitted to owning the drug, pipe and papers.

Orr is charged with possession of marijuana under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. He is scheduled to be in court Feb. 8.


Orr's arrest is the ninth since Will Muschamp took over for Urban Meyer. A redshirt freshman from Clearwater, Orr played in 13 games last season and had 10 tackles.
