Two Gator Basketball Players Arrested Over Weekend
In this kind of scenario, Basketball Head Coach Billy Donovan would like his player to avoid charges. Over the weekend, sophomore Erik Murphy and freshman Cody Larson were arrested in St. Augustine on felony burglary charges for allegedly breaking into a car, according to Sgt Jason Etheredge of the St. Augustine Police Department.
Police said Murphy and Larson were freed on bond, after being arrested early Sunday morning.
Officers were told by bouncers at the nightclub Scarlet Ohara's that Murphy and Larson were caught breaking into a co-workers car outside the club. Police said the victim didn't notice anything missing.
Murphy saw playing time off the bench, helping the Florida Gators reach the Elite Eight for the first time since 2007. Larson, who redshirted in his freshman year, told police he is on probation in his home state of South Dakota for a previous charge.
Both were expected to play more significant roles for the basketball team next season.
