USF's Rudd arrested on driver license charge
USF men's basketball standout Victor Rudd, who this week decided to return for his junior season instead of entering the NBA Draft, was arrested near campus on Friday night and charged with a misdemeanor count of driving without a valid license.
Rudd, 21, was arrested by Temple Terrace police at 9:42 p.m. and booked into county jail an hour later. He was released on a $250 cash bond at 1:25 a.m. It's believed to be his first arrest, and as a second-degree misdemeanor should result in little more than probation and community service.
Rudd is the Bulls' top returning scorer, having averaged 9.2 points as a sophomore. He was an offensive spark in the Bulls' first NCAA Tournament run in 20 years last month, averaging 14.0 points in the Big East and NCAA tournament games.
