27th Gator Arrested Since Urban Meyer Took Over at Florida

This is probably NOT the way Coach Meyer had hoped to spend his “leave of absence”, worrying how to come up with bail money for one of his players. Then again, it’s not the first time a Gator player has been arrested while he’s been in Gainesville: according to some reports, defensive tackle Gary Brown is the 27th player to have a run in with the cops over the past five years. At this point, it might be cheaper for the University of Florida to set up its own bail bond operation as part of the athletic department.
Brown, 19, was arrested by the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office on two charges of misdemeanor battery for allegedly slapping one female in the face with an open palm and scratching another female on the arm. He was booked into Alachua County Jail at 7:49 a.m. Sunday, and has been suspended from the football team, a UF spokesman confirmed.

According to an arrest report, Brown and a friend, Theodore Davis, got into an argument with the two females, who were hosting a party at their apartment and asked several people to leave.  Brown allegedly slapped one girl in the face, and scratched the other girl as she attempted to stop Brown. Neither victim’s injuries were serious enough to require medical attention.

Police initially responded to the scene because Davis had allegedly pulled the fire alarm, shattered the glass to remove the fire extinguisher, and sprayed the contents of the extinguisher on the party-goers. Davis significantly cut his hand on the broken glass and required medical attention.
