Gators Linebacker Finley Released From Jail
Florida linebacker Dee Finley was released from jail on his own recognizance Tuesday morning. He left after being charged Monday with resisting arrest under violence.
The state attorney's office said Tuesday it will now pursue the case
as resisting arrest without violence, which is a misdemeanor rather than a felony.
WCJB spoke with Huntley Johnson, the attorney representing Finley Tuesday. Johnson said that they have not entered a plea yet, but based on the charges Johnson says he would enter a plea of not guilty.
University of Police say Finely refused to show ID and registration after being pulled over on his scooter Monday afternoon. When the officer insisted on seeing ID, the Gators sophomore tried to drive away.
Monday, Gators Head Football Coach Will Muschamp said he was aware of the situation and will handle the matter.
The team has no further comments on Finley's arrest.
