TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State receiver Preston Parker is out of jail after posting a $500 bond.

Parker was arrested early Saturday and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

He was released from the Leon County jail Saturday evening. Jail records on Sunday did not show any attorney listed for Parker.

Tallahassee police arrested the 21-year-old after officers found him passed out in his car in a McDonald's drive-thru lane.

According to police, Parker's blood alcohol content below the state's drunk-driving limit.

However, Parker's urine sample was presumptive positive for marijuana.

A police news release states that Parker admitted to drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana.

It's the third arrest for Parker since 2006 and the second in less than a year.
