Gators OL Jessamen Dunker arrested



Florida offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker is in the Alachua County jail after being arrested today.

Dunker is facing charges of driving with a suspended license, a second degree misdemeanor, and grand theft of a motor vehicle, which is a third degree felony.

Dunker was pulled over for riding on campus on a scooter without a motor vehicle tag. The scooter had previously been reported stolen.

Dunker was booked into the Alachua County Jail at 12:01 p.m.

Florida athletic officials said coach Will Muschamp is aware of the arrest, but is on the road recruiting and will deal with the situation at a later date.

Dunker will remain in the Alachua County Jail pending first appearance on Thursday. A freshman from Boynton Beach who enrolled in January 2012, Dunker did not see action this past season.
