If it weren't for shoulder surgery that he needed, right now Janoris Jenkins would be getting himself ready for the NFL Draft and possibly a year off from football due to the current labor situation. Instead, Jenkins is still a member of the Florida football program, and you have to wonder whether or not he'd have been busted with weed in the bathroom of a Gainesville night club had he left for the NFL. Which is exactly what happened to Jenkins a few weeks after deciding to stay in Gainesville.
Whatever the case, Jenkins spent some time in a courtroom on Friday to deal with the situation. Jenkins was busted in January, when police spotted him rolling a joint in the bathroom at Status night club. The police did not arrest Jenkins, but gave him a citation to appear in court.
That court date was on Friday, where Jenkins pled to misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, and will have to pay $316 in court costs and fines.
This is the second time Jenkins has had some trouble with the law at Florida, as he was also arrested in May 2009 for resisting arrest after getting into a fight outside a Gainesville night club. So maybe Janoris should start going to dive bars instead?
