Florida DT Orr settles marijuana possession case 

Florida defensive tackle Leon Orr has settled two misdemeanor drug charges.

Orr accepted a deferred prosecution deal. He must pay $50 in court costs and either an additional $150 fine or 12 ½ hours of community service.

Orr was cited Jan. 10 after a University Police Department officer searched his dorm room and found marijuana, a marijuana pipe and rolling papers on his desk and bedside table, according to a police report. Orr admitted to owning the drug, pipe and papers. He was charged with possession of marijuana under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.

Orr's arrest was the ninth involving a Florida player since coach Will Muschamp was hired a year ago and sixth involving marijuana. All six cases ended with deferred prosecution.
