Gators Safety Elam Settles Misdemeanor Charge
Florida safety Matt Elam has settled a misdemeanor alcohol possession charge on Monday. The sophomore agreed to pay $291 in court fees, do 12 hours of community service and have six months of supervised probation.
Elam was arrested in July when a Gainesville Police officer found him to be carrying a cup containing cognac. He was released on his own recognizance after agreeing to a court appearance. This was his second alcohol procession charge.
On the field, Elam is a shining star ranking number two on the team with 13 total tackles: he also had a game ending interception versus Tennessee.
Elam credits Will Muschamp, a former safety, with helping him develop on and off the field.
