GAINESVILLE, Fla. - A University of Florida offensive lineman has been charged with stealing a scooter.
Campus police say redshirt freshman Jessamen Dunker was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with vehicle theft, a third-degree felony, and driving with a suspended license, a misdemeanor.
Maj. Brad Barber says an officer observed Dunker tailgating a campus maintenance truck Wednesday morning. After seeing that Dunker's scooter didn't have a license plate, the officer pulled Dunker over near Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. During the stop, the officer learned that Dunker's license was suspended and the scooter had been reported stolen.
Dunker was being held in the Alachua County jail with no bail set. It wasn't clear if Dunker had an attorney.
UF athletic association spokesman Steve McClain says Coach Will Muschamp is aware of the arrest and will address it when he returns from a recruiting trip.
