The officers, of course, did think it WAS their duty to removed someone misbehaving from the stadium and a struggle ensued. Keep in mind, the young man arrested in this case, Andrew Galbo, stands 6’4″ and weighs about 210 lbs. Not massive by football player standards, but on the large side–especially if he’d been drinking–by football fan standards. Not 100% sure what the stadium event staff saw to ask officers to remove Galbo, but whatever it was, was minor compared to brawling with the cops. According to police, Galbo grabbed and tackled an officer and spit in his face before being subdued. Once outside the stadium Galbo allegedly continued to refuse to cooperate, reportedly kneeing an officer three times before being subdued again.
At right, Galbo’s mug shot which shows that he was a little worse for wear after his engagement with officers. Below, a YouTube video that shows some of the action.
Wow! And you thought the NFL players were a rowdy bunch! Just get a hold of Cletus, the dancing robot you see before and after breaks while watching National Football League games on FOX. Sex, drugs, strip clubs, hookers, robot-on-toaster crime, and . . . an illegitimate child?
When is FOX Sports going to fire this guy and hire someone more “family friendly?”
It’s that time of year again folks! Like clockwork, we can almost predict the stories this time of year: usually mid-to-late August we have a rash of drunken college football player arrests (just back to an empty campus and bored); early September brings accusations of hazing by high school football teams (fingers, broom handles, pine cones); and then that’s usually followed by a story about how a principal somewhere is cracking down on high school cheerleaders wearing their uniforms to school on football game days.
The most recent example comes to us from San Jose’s Piedmont Hills High School, where principal Traci “Spit That Gum Out” Williams has decided this year to enforce the school’s dress code after years of allowing this practice (common in most American high schools). The reason? The girls uniforms are now even skimpier than ever and don’t meet the standard of reaching the girl’s “mid thigh” as required for skirts or shorts wore to school. (And no, we’re told, the school is NOT looking for volunteers for the job of measuring skirt lengths, thank you.) Williams did give them the option to wear sweat pants, leggings, or something underneath the skirts, or not to wear them at all.
Wait, that didn’t come out right. We didn’t mean to imply they’d be running around in their underwear and get that mental picture out of your head right away young man! What we meant was the girls could wear nothing INSTEAD of the skirts with something under them. Okay, now THAT came out weird again as well.
Not a whole lot to tell about this story, other than Gator’s back-up linebacker Dee Finley needs to take Driver’s Training over again. First, he gets his license suspended, so he reduced to riding a scooter around campus. Not so bad, right? Unless, of course, the cops put up barricades and you decide to drive around them, like the rules of the road don’t apply to you. At that point, if a cops stops you, grabs you by the wrist and threatens to arrest you, best to comply BEFORE he has to pull out the Taser. Haven’t you seen any of the videos we’ve posted of people getting Tasered, Dee? It never ends well.
Finley now faces a third-degree felony for resisting arrest. At most schools, that would end your career. At Florida, it might just get him a starting spot . . . once he’s out of jail.
