Florida sophomore defensive tackle Leon Orr is facing a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge after less than 20 grams were found in his campus dorm room last week by University Police.

UF spokesman Steve McClain said Thursday night that head coach Will Muschamp is aware of the incident and has handled the matter.

Orr has a court date set for Feb. 8.

According to a UPD report obtained by the Independent Florida Alligator, UPD officers searched Orr's room at the Keys Complex on Jan. 10 and found a green leafy substance in a baggy, along with a glass pipe and rolling papers. Orr was given a notice to appear.

Orr tweeted Thursday night that he's learned from his mistake.
