Florida LB Dee Finley arrested



Florida LB Darnavious A. “Dee” Finley is scheduled to make a first appearance in an Alachua County courthouse today after he was arrested early Monday for driving with a suspended license and resisting a police officer with violence– a third degree felony.

According to a police report, the sophomore from Alabama drove his scooter around a barricade near the football stadium and was pulled over by police. Finely did not comply with requests for his license and registration. Instead, he turned his scooter on and attempted to leave the scene, the report says.

A UPD police officer tried to stop him by grabbing his wrist, but Finley allegedly pushed the officer’s hand away. After being told a Taser would be used, he complied with the officer’s requests. 

According to DMV records, Finley’s license is suspended for failure to pay multiple fines and attend court appearances. Finley is a reserve linebacker who has played in 16 games, including two this season.
