Jessamen Dunker suspended from Florida Gators football team



Redshirt freshman OL Jessamen Dunker has been suspended from the team following his arrest earlier this week, Florida coach Will Muschamp said today.

“I met with Jessamen Dunker this morning and I suspended him from all team activities until we get more information," Muschamp said. "I have been on the road. I just met face-to-face with him this morning for the first time for about 15 minutes. Once we get a little more information, we'll move forward, but he's suspended from the team at this time. We'll address that further when I know more.”
Dunker was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended license and grad theft. According to police reports, Dunker was stoped driving a motor scooter without a valid vehicle registration tag, which turned out to have been reported stolen. Dunker's attorney Huntley Johnson said he has said he bought the scooter for $600 and did not know it was stolen.
