Florida State dismissed cornerback Greg Reid Wednesday in a single-line release that included no comment from the school or coach Jimbo Fisher.
Reid was charged in June with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license, his second arrest in less than a year. Charges for resisting arrest and perjury, stemming from a case that involved a friend who was using Reid's scooter, were eventually dropped.
A three-year starter at cornerback, Reid's kick-return skills earned him All-Atlantic Coast Conference notice.
Reid served a one-game suspension for violating team rules, sitting out the 2011 season opener against Charleston Southern.
If Reid transfers to a lower-division school, he would be eligible to play immediately. Should he opt to use the redshirt year he has available to remain at the FBS level, he must sit out the 2012 season.
