The latest off-field incident for Florida star wide receiver Antonio Callaway appears to be resolved – at least on the legal side.

Various media reports say Callaway pleaded no contest to charges of possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with his May 13 citation.

Callaway, a junior who is Florida’s top receiver, faces a fine of $301, plus court costs.

It’s not immediately certain whether this incident will lead to further disciplinary actions; Florida opens the season Sept. 2 against Michigan. Callaway has had multiple off-field incidents during his time in Gainesville.

At SEC Media Days, Florida coach Jim McElwain compared Callaway to former Alabama and current Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones in their practice habits.
