Former Gator settles case



The sandwich shop case against former football player Jon Demps was settled on Monday.

Demps was arrested in early December after he and defensive end Jermaine Cunningham were accused of assaulting a Gainesville Jimmy Johns Gourmet Sandwich Shop employee by throwing cups and a sandwich at him. Former LSU track standout and Olympic hopeful Xavier Carter was also arrested and charged with resisting arrest without violence. Demps and Cunningham were charged with misdemeanor battery.

At the request of the alleged victim, Demps agreed to donate $100 to a local charity. The victim asked the State Attorney's office that no further action be taken.

Carter settled the case against him earlier this year by also making a donation to a charity. Charges against Cunningham were eventually dropped.
