GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida has dismissed star cornerback
Janoris Jenkins after his third arrest in the last two years.

Coach Will Muschamp announced Jenkins' dismissal Tuesday, three
days after his latest arrest. He was charged with marijuana
possession Saturday after a Gainesville Police officer spotted the
22-year-old sitting in a parked car, smoking what the officer later
found to be a marijuana cigar.

Jenkins was arrested on the same charge in January and later
accepted a plea deal. He also was arrested in May 2009 during a
downtown fight. He signed a deferred prosecution agreement,
agreeing to probation and community service.

Mushcamp says he met with Jenkins on Tuesday, and both felt it
was in Jenkins' best interest to move on "to the next stage of his
career."
