Florida Football Crime: Gators Have 251 Tickets

Posted: Updated:

The Florida Gators football program seems to have a problem with players running afoul of the law. Last week photographs were released of two alleged recruits, one flashing a gun and another a gang sign. Earlier in the season, linebacker Brandon Spikes was suspended for poking an opponent's eyes during a game. And star defensive end Carlos Dunlap was arrested just days before Florida's major SEC Championship matchup against Alabama.

It turns out these incidents are indicative of a much larger trend. The Orlando Sentinel reports that the team has been issued 251 traffic citations in Alachua County alone. According to the paper, the "charges range from speeding tickets to numerous cases of driving with a suspended or revoked license, typically a second-degree misdemeanor or, for repeat offenders, a felony."

Defensive end Jermaine Cunningham has accumulated a stunning 14 tickets, while five teammates trail the ticket leader with 11 each. Check out the Sentinel's report for additional info.
