TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – College football coaches often worry about what their players can get into during their free months in summer. For Florida State University cornerback Greg Reid, the answer is trouble.
According to the CBS affiliate in Tallahassee, Reid was arrested Tuesday night in Georgia. WCTV and the Seminoles’ Rivals.com website Warchant both reported Reid was charged with driving with a suspended license and possession of marijuana. Reid was later released on bond, according to WCTV.
It’s not Reid’s first brush with the law. He was arrested on charges of perjury and resisting arrest during a dispute over a scooter. Both charges were quickly dropped.
Reid was in Lowndes, County Georgia when he was arrested. He played high school football at Lowndes County High and was a Rivals.com five-start recruit when he signed with the Seminoles.
Reid was expected to help lead the Seminoles’ young and vastly improved defense as a senior this year. Last season, Reid had 32 total tackles and 2 interceptions. Reid is also the Noles’ primary kick and punt returner.
If there is a silver lining for Seminoles fans, the team can suspend Reid for the first two games of the season and not have to worry about it impacting the game. Due to West Virginia’s buyout of their game against FSU this season; the Noles play two lower division opponents the first two games of the 2012 season.
