Florida Track and Field Player Kicked Off Team After Arrest
The Florida Gators Track and Field team is consistently near the top in the nation's indoor and outdoor competitions. But one of its players has been arrested on a sexual battery charge and was quickly released from the team. Andries Dumisane Hlaselo, a long distance runner for the Gators, was accused of raping his roommate's friend on June 12, and when his arrest occurred the University took swift action. Florida's athletic department released a statement which read, "We are aware of the arrest of Dumisane Hlaselo. We find these charges deeply disturbing. He is no longer a member of the University of Florida track and field team."
Hlaselo holds South Africa's junior national record in the 1,500 meter, and helped the Gators win the SEC Indoor Track and Field championships, finishing first in the men's mile.
