Florida Running Back Out Against UGA After Possession Charges

The Florida Gators will be without running back Mark Thompson when they take on Georgia after he was cited for marijuana possession.

Thompson was pulled over by police on Thursday after he ran a stop sign near campus. The University Police Department reported the car smelled like marijuana, which led the police to search. Officers eventually found less than 20 grams of marijuana in the car.

Thompson was given a notice to appear in court, as the amount in question only calls for a misdemeanor violation.

The Gators announced Friday Thompson would not be traveling to Jacksonville with the team as they take on their SEC rivals. The team cited the suspension was because of “some choices and decisions [Thompson’s] made.”

Thompson was the third-highest rusher on the Gators’ squad. He has 262 rushing yards and two touchdowns this season.

Without Thompson in the rotation, Jordan Scarlett and Lamical Perine will have a heavier workload as they try to improve on their season.
