ESPN reports that Preston Parker (Florida State Junior Receiver) has been dismissed from the school team after being arrested for the second time in less than a year (the other charges being for weapons and drugs. In 2006, he was also arrested for the alleged theft of a DVD).

This time, Tallahassee police found 21-year-old Parker, asleep in his car with the engine running in a drive-thru McDonalds lane and arrested him for driving under the influence, once officers had banged on the window to wake him that is. Although Parker admitted to drinking and smoking earlier that evening, his blood-alcohol content was 0.054 below the Florida legal limit of 0.08. Police sources have said though that a urine sample was a “presumptive positive” for marijuana.

Parker was freed the following day from the Leon County Jail on $500 bail.
