Gainesville Florida authorities have charged Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah with possession of marijuana and having an open container of alcohol. Noah was arrested around 1:50 a.m. Sunday, May 25th after an officer spotted him on a sidewalk holding a plastic cup containing an amber drink, a violation of city law. Officers also found marijuana in his pocket.

Noah led the Gators to consecutive national championships before being selected ninth overall in last June’s draft by the Bulls. He averaged 6.6 points and 5.6 rebounds in 74 games as a rookie.

He could face up to 6 months in jail and a $500 fine for the marijuana charge.
