Former Dragons, Gators star Reche Caldwell arrested

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

Caldwell, 32, was arrested just after midnight at the corner of Anderson Road and Waters Avenue on charges of possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis, and driving with a cancelled/suspended/revoked license. He was booked shortly after 3 a.m. and released about two 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.

Here's the arrest report.
