Gator corner wanted on five felony charges

Florida cornerback Wondy Pierre-Louis is wanted on five felony charges after a serious altercation with his girlfriend.

According to reports, Pierre-Louis choked his girlfriend, threatened her life, and tried to strangle her, and now faces charges of domestic battery by strangulation, burglary, simple battery, false imprisonment and hindering/delaying communication to law enforcement. The senior cornerback apparently became enraged when he saw his girlfriend with another man.

It’s been a rough few days for Pierre-Louis, who hails from Haiti and struggled to make contact with his family before finding out that most were safe. Still, charges like this, which are incredibly shocking in the details, leave little room for sympathy if they turn out to be true.

Pierre-Louis is out of eligibility, so we won’t have to worry about another lackadaisical punishment from noted disciplinarian Urban Meyer.

    Hey Keith,
    I didn’t have an account here before. But if you really think attempting to strangle someone leads to a “lackadaisical punishment” you need to stop reporting and blogging.
    I don’t know of any coach that could or would find a way for a player to play after those kind of charges. Maybe you can find me an example, but after your straight-news in the first few graphs, the sarcasm wrapping it up is pretty sad.

    Par for the course. Stay classy, Gators.

    “The witness fled”
    I was just wondering if he was naked. We should look a little deeper on the arrest listing for “Police arrested some naked black guy saying he was being chased by some crazy voodoo guy”

    Keith,
    along with the “days without an arrest” meter, could there be a “days without a Florida Gator arrest meter” next to it? It seems it would add valuable context.

    Ted –
    Do some digging on Urban Meyer. Maybe google “assault rifle” and that’ll help.

    Hey, when your not playing for the national championship you have a a lot of free time on your hands. You have to find something to do.

    Just because someone does something incredibly stupid is not an excuse for slamming others. How about Texas – they have had athletes in trouble of late, Tennessee USC, etc. etc. not to mention the pro teams who always seem to have trouble with players getting into trouble for various types of things, such as bringing guns to the locker room, being accused of rape, murdering a wife, cheating on a wife with multiple people, and you don’t blame their coaches, etc., but want to blame college coaches? They aren’t baby sitters – and all are over 18 and know right from wrong. So how about blaming the person who commits the crime and not the coaches??????

    Kieth,
    It amazes me that you dropped “former Gator” from your headline. Oddly enough, both of your reference articles were unbiased enough to note that fact.
    If true, Wondy Pierre-Louis should see some jail time.

    Keith,
    Ted challenged you with,
    “I don’t know of any coach that could or would find a way for a player to play after those kind of charges. Maybe you can find me an example, but after your straight-news in the first few graphs, the sarcasm wrapping it up is pretty sad.”
    You replied with,
    “Do some digging on Urban Meyer. Maybe google “assault rifle” and that’ll help. ”
    Yes, let’s do some digging and provide the whole story and not just a sound bite.
    http://www.gatorsports.com/article/20090614/ARTICLES/906141011?Title=Troubled-tale-of-Florida-lineman-ended-with-him-off-team-for-good
    Assuming that you can read, you will see that your little quip didn’t address Ted’s challenge. Ronnie was kicked of the team and tossed out of school. After he resolved the legal stuff and was re-admitted to school.
    He was allowed to return as a walk on under an absolute zero tolerance policy in which he would have to stay out of trouble for a long period of time to ever play again. He didn’t and was tossed for good without ever playing a down.
    First, you state that WPL is still a Gator CB. Then you imply that Meyer Ronnie play after the AK-47 stupidity. I know that this is just a blog, but don’t you have any journalistic integrity?

    Keith like your writing you are an a ass

    gator_prof:
    Actually, maybe YOU’RE the one who needs to read that article:
    “But things began to take a turn for the worse in April 2007. According to a Gainesville Police report, the 6-foot-4, 315-pound Wilson punched and spat on a victim outside of a Gainesville nightclub. He then took an AK-47 assault rifle out of the trunk of the car and, according to the report, fired it into the air. …
    Meyer suspended Wilson indefinitely following the arrest. But Wilson’s problems didn’t stop there.
    In January 2008, Wilson was arrested on marijuana possession charges when officers allegedly found 6 grams of marijuana in his car.
    Wilson caught a break when the State Attorney’s Office didn’t notice he was on probation, so he wasn’t jailed. Then, the State Attorney’s Office dropped the charges, claiming possession was difficult to prove.
    In August 2008, Meyer allowed Wilson back on the Florida team as a walk-on after he was readmitted to school and had completed his community service.
    Wilson practiced with the team, going by the name “Ron” in the roster, but never played.
    Then, in October 2008, Wilson was arrested a third time on misdemeanor battery and assault charges.”
    In case you didn’t follow that:
    (1) First, the AK-47.
    (2) Then the pot charge.
    (3) THEN Meyer reinstated him.
    (4) He was only kicked off the team after being arrested a THIRD time thereafter.

    overratedgators:
    Several questions:
    1) Did he play another down or even suit up again for the Gators after the gun arrest? Uhm, no.
    2) After the gun charge, was he immediately indefinitely suspended followed by his scholarship being yanked and being kicked out of school? Uhm, triple yes.
    3) Was his scholarship re-instated…EVER? Uhm, no.
    4) Did Meyer place stringent requirements on him (community service, get back into UF, do well grade wise, etc.) before allowing him to walk on? Yes.
    5) Did Meyer require a probationary period of excellent behavior before letting him play? Yes, sadly, Wilson blew his final chance and never got through that.
    This was a bad situation, but you and Keith are over-stating what happened.

    Does the name Lawrence Phillips and Tom Osborne ring a bell?

    Lloyd Carr’s UM,
    Good point…and Christian Peter.
