McCaskill resolves false-name, no-license charges



Former USF defensive tackle Keith McCaskill has resolved his legal issues stemming from a February arrest near campus, with prosecutors not pursuing a misdemeanor charge of giving a false name to police and a judge withholding adjudication on a second charge of driving with a suspended license.


McCaskill, who had a career high of 29 tackles as a senior starter last fall, showed a Hillsborough County judge on July 5 that he now has a valid license and agreed to pay $265 in court costs, allowing adjudication to be withheld. In arresting him, University police had accused him of presenting  himself as his older brother, Nevin, but that charge was not prosecuted.

McCaskill graduated in December with a degree in interdisciplinary social sciences, the same as his twin brother Kevin, a backup offensive lineman last season.
