TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Two Florida State University football players are facing drug charges stemming from an incident on January 31.

According to court documents, that Wednesday evening, Tallahassee Police noticed a suspicious vehicle that was driving along Hayden Road with no headlights on. The car parked then in a poorly-lit area just across the street from Doak Campbell Stadium.

An officer smelled an odor of cannabis emanating from the vehicle and saw the driver smoking a blunt as she approached the car.

Backup officers arrived at the scene and authorities identified the driver as 19-year-old Zaquandre White, and the passenger as 19-year-old Kyle Meyers.

Officers conducted a search of the vehicle and found a cannabis cigarette and trace amounts of cannabis throughout the car.

According to court documents, Meyers admitted to sharing the cannabis cigarette with White and said they were "hotboxing" the car.

Following an investigation, White and Meyers were given notices to appear in court on charges of possession of under 20 grams of cannabis and possession of narcotic equipment.

The evidence was impounded by police and both suspects were released at the scene.

An arraignment is set for February 22.

The 2017 FSU Football roster lists White as a freshman running back and Meyers as a sophomore defensive back.
