Pahokee's Latest Football Superstar Tased, Arrested in Gainesville
As of this weekend, it looks like Jenkins has joined another, less auspicious list: the ever-growing number of Gators arrested in the last four years, as UF does its best to become the state's new Thug U.
Police arrested Jenkins in Gainesville over the weekend after breaking up a bar fight over the football star's chain necklace. Jenkins allegedly threw a punch after an officer told him to stop and was tased for his efforts. He also ran away from the cops, the Orlando Sentinel reports, but was arrested less than two blocks away.
Jenkins' attorney classified the arrest as a "very minor incident" and said he expected it to be dismissed without any jail-time.
