Florida redshirt freshman defensive lineman Gary Brown was arrested on two counts of misdemeanor battery early Sunday morning.

Brown has been suspended from team activities, according to UF spokesman Steve McLain.

According to the arrest report, Brown, 19, allegedly struck one female victim in the face and scratched another female victim's arms when he refused to leave a party late Saturday night. Neither victim required medical attention.

Brown was booked into Alachua County jail early Sunday morning.

Brown is the 26th football player to be arrested in Florida coach Urban Meyer's five-year tenure.
