Two players from the Florida Gators football team have fallen in the sights of the NCAA’s scope this week. Just two days after the Gators quarterback, Will Grier, was suspended for the year, Florida has lost another player, Deiondre Porter. The Gators star defensive back was suspended from the team today following an arrest on four felony charges.
Deiondre Porter has been suspended from the team indefinitely.

According to ESPN,
“Florida freshman defensive back Deiondre Porter was suspended indefinitely after police arrested him on four felony charges after he allegedly held a gun to his pregnant girlfriend’s head and also shot in her direction.
Porter, one of the team’s top special teams players, was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault charges.”
UF? The University of Felons? This news comes as another huge loss to the 6-0 Gators as they travel to Louisiana this weekend to face LSU at Death Valley.
“According to the Alachua County police report, Porter faces one charge of aggravated battery (second-degree felony), one charge of firing a weapon into a vehicle or building (third-degree felony) and two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill (third-degree felony).
He also was charged with property damage of less than $200, a second-degree misdemeanor.”
Hopefully Porter practiced holding the soap tightly in the university locker rooms, as he is facing serious jail time in one of Florida’s state penitentiaries.
The case is under investigation, but Porter has been suspended indefinitely from the football team.
Save the aggression for the field, Gators.
