Florida State cornerback Greg Reid was arrested in Georgia on Tuesday night for drving with a suspended license and marijuana possession, according to Lowndes County Sheriff Chris Prine. Reports indicate a third change, driving without a seatbelt, was part of his arrest.
Reid has since bonded out.
The arrest came after Reid was stopped by a Georgia State Patrol officer in South Georgia. During the stop, it was discovered that Reid’s license was suspended and that he had an amount of marijuana on him.
Following his arrest, Reid was transported to the Lowndes County Jail, where he spent a little more than four hours before bonding out.
Reid is back in Tallahassee.
This is Reid’s second arrest in less than a year. Last fall, Reid was charged with perjury in an unofficial proceeding and resisting arrest. The late-September night of his arrest, officers trying to apprehend a suspect who was riding a scooter registered to Reid that had no license plate on it. The alleged suspect was believed to be a friend of Reid’s.
The charges were later dropped.
FSU Head Coach Jimbo Fisher is out of town and likely wont comment on the matter until the police report and additional facts in the case are released.
Last season, Reid had a total of 32 tackles and two interceptions, both came in the game against Florida.
This past spring practice season, Reid and Fisher spoke about how it appeared the once troubled player had begun to turn his life around for the better on and out the field.
