Misdemeanor charge dropped against Florida QB Treon Harris

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida quarterback Treon Harris is no longer facing a misdemeanor charge of driving without a license.

The charge was dropped Wednesday, a day before his scheduled arraignment, and Alachua County records show the case closed.

Harris' attorney, Huntley Johnson, says his client recently got his driver's license, which led to the dismissal.

Campus police stopped Harris last month for speeding. Two other Florida players, defensive backs Jalen Tabor and J.C. Jackson, were in the car.

According to police, an odor of marijuana emanated from the car and two plastic bags were found inside that appeared to hold a small amount of marijuana. Because the car did not belong to Harris, Tabor or Jackson, police did not charge any of them with possession.

Harris was cited for not having a license.
