LB Barrington back in jail, held without bond

17

August

Driver's license issues continue to be a major problem for USF sophomore linebacker Sam Barrington, who was held in county jail in Tampa on Tuesday night without bond -- his third time in jail in 13 months, all relating to charges of driving with a license that has been cancelled, suspended or revoked.

RELATED NEWS/ARCHIVE

Barrington, 19, had been with USF's football team in Vero Beach, but was at the Hillsborough County Clerk of Courts office at 801 E. Twiggs St. on Tuesday evening -- it's possible he was turning himself in. According to the Sheriff's Office website, he was held on two misdemeanor counts of driving with a suspended/revoked license, one of them matching an arrest last month after he was pulled over in Tampa. He was arrested at 5:25 p.m. and booked into county jail at 8:25 p.m., with a judge revoking bond, according to the site.

Barrington's only infractions have been traffic issues, but he's had enough of them to cause larger issues -- his traffic stop last month was his sixth in 13 months, with most resolved with payment of fines. Barrington was not expected to face any game suspension as a result of his arrest in July, but this specifically takes him away from the team at a time in which the Bulls are trying to avoid distractions. Barrington, expected to be the Bulls' starting middle linebacker if healthy, has been limited in practice due to a lingering shoulder injury.
