Two Florida State football players are due in court next week after being cited for marijuana-related complaints late last month.
Defensive back Kyle Meyers and running back Zaquandre White were spotted by the Tallahassee Police Department parking multiple times in a gravel lot after 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 31. Police approached their car and saw White smoking a marijuana cigarette, according to an incident report.
Meyers told police that he and White smoke marijuana together “occasionally but not often.” Meyers said they passed the cannabis back and forth to each other, and Meyers threw the marijuana cigarette into a Gatorade bottle when he saw police approaching, according to the report.
Meyers cooperated with the investigation, but White was described in the report as being “argumentative” at times.” He told police that the cigarette was not marijuana, even after it tested positive for cannabis at the scene. Traces of the drug were also found on his pants.
White faces complaints of possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis and possession of narcotic equipment. Meyers faces a complaint of possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis.
Meyers, a 6-foot, 168-pound New Orleans native, has appeared in every game each of the last two seasons. He started twice last fall as a sophomore, recording 26 tackles and an interception.
White, a 6-foot, 210-pound Fort Myers native, redshirted last season. The four-star prospect was also a witness in the recent domestic violence investigation regarding quarterback Deondre Francois, who was not charged in the incident.
Both are due in court on Feb. 22.
