Florida WRs arrested, charged with felonies after shooting BB gun at dorm

|

Two freshmen members of the Florida Gators football program are in some hot water, after being arrested and charged with felonies for shooting a BB gun at the dorm.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, freshmen receivers Tyrie Cleveland and Rick Wells charged with criminal mischief for damaging property and shooting a missile inside an occupied dwelling. Both of the charges are felonies.

“A UF Police Department report said an officer was sent to Keys Residential at 11:30 p.m. Sunday and observed three windows had been shattered and had a small, round hole in each. Video surveillance revealed two males shooting at someone at around 6:45 p.m. Sunday,” the report read.

“The officer identified the men with their ID cards to be Cleveland and Wells. Wells admitted his wrongdoing to the officer and turned over the BB gun. The two players then were arrested and booked at 3:38 a.m.”

Both Cleveland and Wells are top ten wide receivers in this year’s recruiting class.

Cleveland was the No. 2 ranked wide receiver and one of the top recruits in the state of Texas. The university is expected to officially address the situation later today, with no word on what type of punishment the receivers may face.
