Florida defensive tackle Leon Orr faces pot charges after a January 10 arrest.

Defensive tackle Leon Orr became the first Florida Gators player of the season to be arrested, reportedly being busted with fewer than 20 grams worth of marijuana on January 10. He's the eighth player of the Will Muschamp era to be arrested, producing the ninth total arrest.

As Florida blog Alligator Army points out, true allegations in this instance would be a sign of the young man making a dumb mistake, but nothing malicious. Likewise, Alligator Army points out the young man's Twitter background could be considered a dumb mistake, were one of the mindset that avoiding marijuana suspicion is a good idea for the student-athlete.

Orr, a rising sophomore from New Port Richey, played in seven 2011 games, posting multiple tackles against Kentucky, Furman and Ohio State. He also put up a sack in the UK game.
