Florida arrests


Had a chance to compile some data on the Florida football-related arrests during coach Urban Meyer’s four-year tenure.

Some of the numbers:

Of the 24 arrests, 15 were misdemeanors and nine were felonies.

Five were criminal-traffic related (e.g., knowingly driving with a suspended license)

Of the 24, 14 involved players that were either recruited by Zook or recruited in Meyer’s first recruiting class.

There were a few repeat offenders, most notably Jon Demps (twice), Jacques Rickerson (twice) and Ronnie Wilson (three times.)

In at least nine of the cases, charges were dropped. There are still more that I’m looking into.

In eight of the cases, players were either suspended indefinitely or kicked off the team.
