KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Tennessee football player Jauan Jennings was booked Wednesday morning on a drug possession citation, according to court records.
Records show the incident happened on January 15 just before 1 a.m. on James Agee Street. He was cited for simple possession/casual exchange (marijuana).
Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said an officer pulled Jennings over for going the wrong way on a one way street. He was also cited for not having proof of insurance. An underage girl who was with Jennings was cited for underage consumption.
Jennings was scheduled for a misdemeanor citation booking on Wednesday morning followed by an arraignment.
Jennings is a wide receiver from Murfreesboro. He finished the season strong, helping the Volunteers end an 11 game losing streak against Florida. His game-winning Hail Mary catch to beat Georgia has been on the front of fans’ minds.
A spokesperson with Tennessee Athletics said the university is aware of the situation and has no further comment.
