VERNON, CONN. (AP) - A judge has granted former Connecticut forward Jamal Coombs-McDaniel admission into the state’s drug education program.

The Rockville Superior Court order Wednesday requires Coombs-McDaniel to take 10 drug education classes and perform 75 hours of community service. The charges will be dismissed if he complies with the requirements.

Coombs-McDaniel was arrested in April on campus and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police say Coombs-McDaniel and two friends were found with 5.6 grams of marijuana, a marijuana grinder and a package of cigars used to smoke marijuana.

He has called his actions “a silly mistake.”
