CAYCE, S.C. (AP) -- Police say South Carolina receiver Dion
Lecorn was charged with simple possession of marijuana after he was
arrested at a Cayce apartment complex.
A police report says the freshman receiver from Ocala, Florida,
and two other men told police they had been smoking marijuana
Sunday night in a car at the apartment complex. An officer who was
patrolling the complex smelled the marijuana when she came over to
the car to tell the men to turn down the music.
Police said they found a burnt marijuana cigarette in the car's
ashtray during a search and Lecorn indicated it was his.
It was not immediately clear whether Lecorn had an attorney.
Lecorn had 27 catches for 315 yards and three touchdowns last
