Florida State running back Dalvin Cook is in an odd situation right now. Earlier this summer, Cook was suspended for allegedly striking a woman in a bar in July.
According to College Spun, the jury in Cook’s trial was selected, but that wasn’t the most interesting to come out of the day in court. Safid Deen of the Tallahassee Democrat reported that there was new evidence in the case that was not permitted to be used in the case.
From Deen’s story:
Cook’s lawyers were granted a motion for sanctions against the State Attorney’s Office in Tallahassee after it tried to introduce screenshots of posts from a fake Twitter account, Cook’s juvenile records and business records as evidence. Those items will not be included in testimony.
There was one tweet in particular that was supposedly going to be used against Cook in court.
This is certainly one of the strangest developments to come out of Cook’s court case. This is sure one case that is going to be one to watch.
