There are three certainties in the world of SEC football: Alabama winning a conference championship, Georgia setting the bar high and then failing to live up to those expectations, and arrests amongst the Florida Gators. We can already check one of those three off the list for the 2016 season after two freshmen receivers for Florida, Tyrie Cleveland and Rick Wells, shot up their dorm with BB guns late Friday night. They were arrested on Sunday.
From Sun Sentinel:
The two players currently are being held in Alachua County Jail and charged with two felony counts.
Cleveland and Wells, both 18, were charged with criminal mischief for damaging property of more than $1,000 – a third-degree felony – and shooting a missile inside an occupied dwelling – a second-degree felony.
A UF Police Department report said an officer was sent to Keys Residential at 11:30 p.m. Friday and observed three windows had been shattered and had a small, round hole in each. A review of video surveillance revealed two males shooting at someone at around 6:45 p.m.
Freshmen, man. You’d think that when someone says you should fire BB guns inside your dorm, you’d have the wherewithal to think, “yeah, better not.”
One of the things that Siblings failed to mention in his 3 Reasons Florida Will Suck In 2016 article was the Gators off-the-field issues. Looks like Florida is getting things started early this year..
