Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall was cited for marijuana possession Friday afternoon, per a report from News 3 WRBL.

Marshall was reportedly driving when he was pulled over for illegally tinted windows. The officer on scene smelled marijuana and searched the car, where he found less than an ounce of pot. Marshall was not arrested, and was ticketed $100 for the windows and $1000 for the pot. 

In his first year as Auburn's starting quarterback, Marshall led the Tigers to the BCS National Championship game, where they lost to Florida State. Marshall threw for 1,976 yards with a 59.4 completion percentage and 14 TDs. He also ran for 1,068 yards and 12 scores.

Marshall began his college career as a defensive back at the University of Georgia, but he was dismissed from the team for stealing from a teammate. From there, he went to Garden City Community College where he switched positions to quarterback. After a season at Garden City, Marshall transferred to Auburn.
