Former Gators S Matt Elam arrested in Miami

Former Florida Gator and current Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam was arrested Sunday morning in Miami on drug charges. 

Elam was booked into the Miami-Dade Jail at 3:45 AM and charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of cannabis with the intent to sell, and possession of a controlled substance.  All three charges are felonies in Florida. Police originally pulled Elam over for reckless driving. 

The police affidavit stated that Elam had 126 grams of marijuana and an additional three grams of oxycodone in his possession. 

Elam was a first round pick by Baltimore in the 2013 NFL draft after spending three years at the University of Florida. Elam accumulated 176 tackles and 6 interceptions in his Gator career. 

Elam will be a free agent later this month as the Ravens did not exercise his option.
