Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley, who is out for the season with a knee injury, was arrested Wednesday on marijuana charges, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The report states that housing personnel at Scott-Wesley's campus dorm detected an odor from the player's room. The redshirt sophomore was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession/use of a drug object.

According to police records, UGA Police officer Matt Browning was dispatched to the dormitory at 10:41 p.m., Wednesday. The officer traced the smell on the first floor of the dorm to Scott-Wesley’s room. After Scott-Wesley was confronted and admitted to smoking marijuana, he grudgingly gave consent to search his room and a glass pipe and marijuana “grinder” were located in a desk drawer. No significant quantities of marijuana were found but the residue in the grinder resulted in the possession charges, according to the report.

However, an arrest warrant was not issued until Thursday morning. Scott-Wesley turned himself in to the Athens-Clarke County Jail at 4:19 p.m. on Thursday and was released three hours later on a total $4,000 in bond. He was booked under his given name of Justin Bernard Wesley.

Georgia officials could not be immediately reached for comment by the AJC.

Scott-Wesley tore his ACL against Tennessee on Oct. 5. At the time of his injury, he was second on the team with 16 receptions for 311 yards and two touchdowns.
