GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida reserve defensive tackle Leon Orr was given deferred prosecution for his arrest earlier this month on possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

According to Alachua County court records, Orr was fined $50 and also will have to either serve 12 1/2 hours of community service or pay an additional $150 fine.

Orr was arrested by University of Florida police on Jan. 10 after a bag of marijuana, a pipe and rolling papers were found in Orr’s dorm room. He was charged with misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug equipment.

Orr, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound redshirt freshman who had 10 tackles and one sack in 2011, is the eighth player to be arrested since Muschamp took over for Urban Meyer in January 2011.

UF spokesman Daniel Apple said last week that Gators coach Will Muschamp is aware of the incident and has handled the matter, but was unable to say whether Orr has been suspended. Apple said Tuesday that the school would have no further comment.
