Auburn's Nick Marshall cited for possession of marijuana

By  | 

(DOTHAN) -- Auburn University quarterback Nick Marshall was cited for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana in Reynolds, Georgia.

According to Police Chief Lonnie Holder, Marshall was not arrested.

Marshall, the returning quarterback who was supposed to be part of Auburn's SEC Media Days contingent on Monday, was pulled over due to a possible window tinting violation at 12:45 p.m. on Highway 96 in Reynolds.

According to Holder, the officer detected the smell of marijuana coming from the car, and upon search of the vehicle, police found "8-or-9" grams of marijuana, which is less than an ounce.

Marshall was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession and a window tint violation.

The Rochelle, Ga., native began his career at Georgia as a cornerback, but he was dismissed from the team after his freshman year for an undisclosed violation of team rules that reportedly involved stealing money from a teammate.

This is the 2nd marijuana-related incident for an Auburn football player in a two week span. On June 27th, Auburn senior defensive back Jonathon Mincy was arrested on Friday and charged with second degree marijuana possession.
The Auburn athletic department has not commented publicly yet on Marshall's citation.
