Florida Gators' Jordan Smith faces more felony complaints



Florida Gators defensive lineman Jordan Smith faces four felony complaints from the Gainesville Police Department, according to Alachua County court records.

Police allege that Smith used the credit card of a man in Virginia to pay $1,007.82 for his Gainesville apartment, according to a sworn complaint filed Wednesday. Smith faces two fraud complaints and two for larceny grand theft (between $300 and $5,000).

Smith is also accused of using that same card to deposit $800 into his UF bookstore debit account. Smith faces 18 felony complaints from the University of Florida Police Department in that related case. He and eight other Gators are involved in the scandal, and they remain indefinitely suspended from the team while the State Attorney's Office reviews the case and weighs formal charges.

Smith, 19, is a 6-foot-5, 240-pound redshirt freshman from Lithonia, Ga. He has not appeared in a game at UF.
