Iowa incoming freshman running back Greg Garmon has been charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana in his hometown of Erie, Pa., according to multiple media reports.

The Erie Times-News reported that police stopped Garmon's car on June 1 and found a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle. Garmon also was charged with driving with an expired registration.

Iowa has yet to comment on Garmon's legal situation.

Garmon was scheduled to report to Iowa this weekend, and he had been expected to compete for immediate playing time this fall at a position of major need for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa's leading rusher from 2011, Marcus Coker, transferred in the offseason to Stony Brook and his backup, Mika'il McCall, also left the program this winter. Potential successor Jordan Canzeri tore his ACL in March and is out for the season.
