Two weeks and a day after Loucheiz Purifoy's February 6 arrest on a charge of marijuana possession, that charge has been dropped due to a lack of evidence, reports Robbie Andreu of The Gainesville Sun.
Purifoy faced one misdemeanor count of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana after being arrested with the other passengers in a vehicle pulled over for a traffic violation. If you didn't know there was going to be a Huntley Johnson quote in this article, you must not follow Florida sports very diligently. Johnson, who represented Purifoy, told Andreu one simple thing.
"He never had any marijuana on him, therefore he was not guilty of possession of marijuana," said Huntley Johnson, Purifoy’s attorney.
A Huntley Johnson quote is a wonderful thing. So is the fact that the only important thing coming of a player's arrest for marijuana is the knowledge that his middle name is Deouncelonte.
Florida never publicly announced a suspension or a punishment for Purifoy, and an erroneous charge that gets dropped should probably only require a conversation with Will Muschamp about picking people who don't carry weed in their cars to be the transportation for the night.
