Former Florida Gator Reche Caldwell arrested in Tampa

Former Jefferson High and University of Florida Gators football standout Donald "Reche" Caldwell was arrested early this morning in Hillsborough County on two misdemeanor charges, including marijuana possession.

Caldwell, 32, was arrested just after midnight for possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis, and driving with a cancelled/suspended/revoked license. He was released about five hours later on a $750 cash bond.

A 1,000-yard receiver and second-team all-SEC pick as a Gators junior in 2001, Caldwell was drafted in the second round by the San Diego Chargers the following spring and spent parts of seven seasons in the NFL.
