A Louisville wide receiver was scheduled to appear in court next month to face charges of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

The charges against JaJuan Spillman stem from a car accident in January.

The sophomore was scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 21, the day before Louisville's home game against Syracuse.

Spillman continues to practice with the team.

"We are aware of JaJuan Spillman being in court and will not comment until the issue is resolved through the courts," Louisville spokesman Rocco Gasparro said.

According to a police report, an officer responded to an accident near campus. The report said Spillman and an unnamed passenger admitted to the officer that they had smoked marijuana in the car. An officer found 9.3 grams of marijuana, police said.

Spillman averaged 27.9 yards per kickoff return last season and tied a school record with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Rutgers and caught seven passes for 56 yards.
