Wan’Dale Robinson, Husker freshman wide receiver/running back, was cited on suspicion of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana Sunday night, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln spokeswoman said Monday.
UNL police were called to a room in the University Suites near 18th and R Streets after a community service officer smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the room, spokeswoman Leslie Reed said.
Three people were in the room, Reed said, but Robinson was the only one cited. The marijuana was found in Robinson’s vehicle during a search, she said.
Reed said that because it was a first offense, the citation is considered an infraction, not a misdemeanor.
Robinson’s court appearance is scheduled for July 9, Reed said.
A statement from the UNL Athletic Department said, “We are aware of the situation and are addressing it.”
