Tennessee running back Tim Jordan was arrested early on Saturday morning in Florida on gun and marijuana charges, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.
Jordan was charged with carrying a concealed firearm, possessing narcotic paraphernalia and possessing 20 grams or less of marijuana, per the report.
According to the News Sentinel, Lakeland, Florida, police pulled Jordan over before 5 a.m. on Saturday morning after he was allegedly speeding and swerving repeatedly into a bike lane. They reported smelling “a strong odor of cannabis emanating from inside” the car, and that both Jordan and a 17-year-old male in the passenger seat of the car were “extremely nervous.”
Jordan reportedly then told police that he had a gun in his back pocket, but did not have a concealed carry permit. The gun was allegedly loaded and unholstered.
Police found more than nine grams of marijuana in the car, a scale and several small plastic bags, per the report.
Jordan and the 17-year-old, whose name was redacted from the report, were both arrested.
Jordan — a Bartow, Florida, native — ran for 428 yards on 104 carries and had one touchdown in 12 games last season for the Volunteers, who finished with an 8-5 record and a win over Indiana at the Gator Bowl. The 20-year-old compiled just more than 1,002 yards and four touchdowns in his three-year career with the program.
A Tennessee athletic department spokesperson declined to comment to the News Sentinel about his arrest.
