10:43 AM ET 02.15 | Two drug felony charges will be dropped against an Auburn football signee, his attorney told the Montgomery Advertiser on Friday. Camden County High School defensive back Kalvaraz Bessent was one of four people charged with possession of marijuana over 20 grams and possession with intent by Florida's Nassua County Sheriff's Office. The four were stopped for speeding in a 2007 Dodge Charger last Friday, and 320 grams of marijuana and a handgun were found. On Friday, Bessent's attorney told the Montgomery Advertiser's James Crepea that "all" charges have been dropped against his client.

Just a little misunderstanding really it wasn't his weed. He had just been thumbing a ride. You know wrong place at the right time.

So, we're good to go, right coach?

A Georgia high school student(or ex) that is an Auburn signee got busted in Florida, and the Florida law enforcement dropped all charges! Wow, mighty nice of'em.

What is wrong with this picture?

In a case like this, where there are multiple occupants, it's on the cops to assign possession to someone. If they can't, and if the DA thinks the charges won't stick, they go away. Happens all the time, not just in football country.

Good God. Are you kidding me?

What an absolutely horrific comment to make. One of the most tasteless and irresponsible remarks I've ever seen here.

Exactly. Only the jealous will assign blame w/o evidence.

Oh, right, there was not 320 grams of marijuana and a handgun in the car he was not riding in. How silly of me.

And I did say it was mighty nice of them to drop charges.

And you can take this jealousy bit and shove it, leeroy.

Hey DoDo -
You forgot there were four (4) FOUR people in the car.
I could have added the category of ignorant, but I left it a jealousy. I'll amend to include ignorant in your case.
