“His parents were asking me for the phone back.”

This seems like one of those stories that’s too surreal to be true.  But it’s still too good to ignore.


UPDATE:  Of course.

Easley is being represented by a Gainesville attorney with extensive experience representing UF athletes, Huntley Johnson.

On Tuesday afternoon when Johnson was asked why Easley had hired an attorney, he said, “Probably because he read the (U.S.) Constitution. It’s his right.”

  1. The UF Police arrest the victim of an alleged assault by a UF player. That sounds about right.

    It said Easley made 4 tackles the other night. I assume if the charges stick, they will up his total to 5?


  3. Bryant Denny

    This is the guy that totes around the Chucky doll…seriously creepy.

    I mean the things coaches put up with to field a team, wow.


  4. Puffdawg

    This sort of thing would never happen to a coached team.


  5. Go Dawgs!

    Just another of Meyer’s top 1% of the top 1%, if you ask me.

    I wonder why it is taking the investigators so long to get to the bottom of this?


    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      Yeah. Why would the Gainesville, Florida police not be able to rapidly conclude an investigation of assault charges leveled at a University of Florida football player? It makes absolutely no sense why it would get strung out like that. Perhaps the Gainesville, FL PD is going to seminars on how to investigate and bring charges given by the Knoxville, TN PD.


  7. Nate Dawg

    Wow, I hope his actions keep him off the invite list to a certain Cocktail Party in late October.


  8. Public Intoxication?? -how long after the game was this?


  9. JBJ

    Is that the Florida Way?

    So let’s run down the facts.

    1. Someone was attacked.
    2. The attacker dropped his phone.
    3. The parents of the attacker asked for his phone back.
    4. There were two eye witnesses that gave statements.
    5. There is video of the attack from security cameras.
    6. UPD is unable to identify the attacker as of yet.
    7. UPD does successfully arrest the victim of a violent attack because he couldn’t calm down fast enough to satisfy them.

    That sounds about right for UPD.

    I’m sure they will figure out who did it after October. It is a busy month for them.

    They make you crazy.

    A comparison to a somewhat ‘recent’ georgia incident from Mike in 3…2…

    Will is going to need a bigger chain for Dominque


  14. Cojones

    Word now is that Easley carries Chucky as a telephone receptacle. In a pushing and shoving crowd, Chucky leaped from his arms and disappeared ahead. Moments later he was back sans the phone and telling Easley to bugger out because some guy had been attacked and was looking for him. Hey, I just write what is heard from the Benadril Swamp.

    Also , word is that Easley will be charged right after the UGA game.


  15. AusDawg85

    I’m sure the Bama alum was overheard discussing poisoning the swamp with Finebaum and Easley will be exonerated by the UPD for saving the day.


  16. If he’s not arrested, and then suspended for a LONG time, then Muschamp is certainly a man with little or no principle. There are TOO many coaches like that in football. CMR might have a more than occasional discipline problem, but at least it includes real, honest discipline. The Phil Fulmers, Steve Spurriers, and Les Miles (and obvious others) of college football are actually cheaters (IMHO) because they wink at what should absolutely be a suspension worthy incident and let the player get off practically scott free.
    I say “cheaters” because their actions (or lack of ) are morally dishonest. Muschamp is out of control and his team will increasingly reflect it in their actions.


    • Cojones

      Mike? Where are you when we need an experienced opinion on gator transgressions? I heard that Easley was ticked off because the guy wanted too much for a baggy. Doesn’t he know that times are bad in FU land since the weed crop had a drought?


  17. Ubiquitous GA Alum

    Easley should invoke the Satan’s Crotchpit Defense


  18. Hobnail_Boot

    He’ll be punished harshly, no doubt.

    Imagine the anguish this outstanding young role model will endure as he sits out UF’s first 2 offensive possessions of their huge November clash with Furman.


  19. Irishdawg

    I dunno, didn’t Muschamp bounce a starter off the team in the offseason for his 3rd weed arrest or something? He might not be so Urbanesque when it comes to off-field shitheadeness.


    • Cojones

      Yeah, but it was three, right? And it was ARRESTS with the joint still in their fingers (or the blunt in the ashtray). Close and suspicion don’t count with mj.
      And didn’t you leave a “d” out of shitheadedness?


  20. Irishdawg

    Nobody likes a spelling geek, Cojones.

    Yeah, it was 3 arrests, but Muschamp wasn’t there for the first 2, so you really can’t hang that one on him.

    He might stay true to UF form and let players slide with felonies ( I noticed Rainey’s still on the team), but he did boot the stoner cornerback when Meyer probably would have let him stay.

    I didn’t know alligators could also be knuckle-draggers.
