Reynolds, GA - REYNOLDS, Ga. (AP) — Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall has been cited for possession of a small amount of marijuana in Georgia.

Reynolds Police Chief Lonnie Holder said he and another officer detected the odor of marijuana after pulling Marshall over at 12:45 p.m. Friday for a window tint violation. Holder says they found 8-10 grams of marijuana under the passenger-side visor.

Because it was less than an ounce, they didn't arrest Marshall.

The Tigers' quarterback was cited for violations of two city ordinances. Marshall doesn't have to appear for a Sept. 10 court date if he pays fines of $1,000 for marijuana possession and $100 for the window tint violation.

Marshall, who is from Pineview, Georgia, helped lead Auburn to a Southeastern Conference title and into the BCS championship game last season.

Statement from Gus Malzahn:

"I am aware of the situation that happened earlier today with Nick. I'm very disappointed and will address it with him accordingly."


Marshall is scheduled to attend SEC Media Days next week. The Tigers will be the first school to speak at the event, which begins on Monday.
