Oakland Raider, ex-Florida Gator Louis Murphy arrested

Oakland Raiders WR Louis Murphy, a St. Petersburg native and former Florida Gator standout, was arrested Sunday in Gainesville and charged with possession of a drug without a valid prescription, failure to obey a police officer and resisting arrest without violence, all misdemeanors.

An officer said he found a "non-labeled prescription bottle containing 11 individual pills later identified as Viagra." Murphy, 23, could not provide a prescription and reportedly said he had peeled the label off the bottle "because he did not want his girlfriend to know he had a prescription for it."
