FSU’s Greg Reid arrested on pair of misdemeanor charges

Greg Reid, Marcus Davis

It has not been the best of starts to a season for Greg Reid.  First the Florida State cornerback/return man extraordinaire was suspended for the second game of the season for violating unspecified team rules, then missed Saturday’s loss to Clemson due to injury.

Now, Reid has an off-field legal incident with which to deal.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Reid was arrested early Monday morning and charged with perjury not in an official proceeding and resisting an officer without violence.  The Tallahassee Democrat reports Reid was being held in the Leon County Jail in lieu of a $500 bond.

No details were given as to what led to the arrest.

FSU has yet to comment on the arrest, and it’s unknown what if any punishment the junior may face.

Reid started all 14 games as a true sophomore last season, and as a true freshman the year before he led the nation in punt return average at 18.4 yards per return.

UPDATED 12:12 p.m. ET: An already head-scratching story has taken a turn toward the bizarre, with the Orlando Sentinel reporting the following details as to what led to the charges for Reid.

The police report, obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, says the incident began when officers made a traffic stop on a man riding a scooter near Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee. The rider of the scooter resisted police officers and then escaped.

Officer determined that the scooter belonged to Reid and contacted him. According to the report, officers asked Reid who the rider of the scooter was and Reid said he was Montrel Frazier.

The report said Reid “backtracked” by saying the friend’s name was “Rontrel,” and said he always called his friend “Trel.”

Reid then provided a written statement that identified his friend as “Montrel,” and was arrested for perjury not in an official proceeding and resisting an officer without violence.

OK then.  That clears it all up.

    Typical ACC trash

    You don’t see this kind of junk in the SEC

    What have we learned here? There is a new saying: instead of where there’s smoke, there’s fire, it’s where there’s a scooter, there’s trouble.

    Not in the SEC huh? Wasn’t it just two weeks ago when a UF player was arrested for resisting on a scooter by their stadium. Lets talk typical. Typical SEC fans turn the blind eye to all their mishaps and jump on any other team or conference as soon as something happens. Typical SEC douche bags.

    SEC idiot. Im pretty sure Florida is in the SEC and if im not mistaking wasn’t it about three weeks ago. A Florida player resisted arrest on a scooter. Just saying

    @canesfangatorhater

    Ya a player was arrested, but thats not because he was doing anything wrong. He was getting home from the library late; didnt know he was being pulled over by a cop. Read the story. Reid on the other hand–it has been mentioned–is involved in drugs and was trying to get home quickly.

    @ blakeowen13

    See above. Just saying

  6. canesfangatorhater says: Sep 26, 2011 1:04 PM

    He wasn’t getting home late from the library, you need to read the story. He was late to practice and cut down a road that was closed off with barricades. So he was illegally driving down a closed road. Then when he got pulled over and realized he was in trouble he pulled his arm away and tried to flee. Getting home late from the library?…..give me a break.

  7. thesecplaysforkeeps says: Sep 26, 2011 1:18 PM

    So riding a scooter down a closed-off street is something to get arrested for? At least he was trying to get to practice. Whatever happened to giving a guy a break?

    Go ahead and try to pin this on the SEC. I dare you.

    I wish I had a really good jealousy cliche

  8. blakeowen13 says: Sep 26, 2011 1:32 PM

    @sec doucher read above. Pretty sure it says he got arrested for trying to flee. Which means run from the cops. Just saying.

  9. canesfangatorhater says: Sep 26, 2011 1:35 PM

    Are you mental? He got arrested for resisting arrest after being pulled over for driving town a closed road. I’m also not sure what you are daring me to do? Pin this on the SEC? I’m simply pointing out that the SEC is not as innocent as you fans think. You come on here to chastise FSU and and the ACC for a guy getting arrested for resisting arrest, and then you make some ignorant statement about how “this junk doesn’t happen in the SEC” when it DID happen TWO weeks ago. Typical ignorant SEC douche bags.

  10. cburmester85 says: Sep 26, 2011 1:37 PM

    I didn’t know a Florida player got arrested for trying to flee on a scooter, at least at da “U” they buy their pleyers cars which give them a better chance of fleeing from the police.

  11. canesfangatorhater says: Sep 26, 2011 1:40 PM

    @cburmester….lol Allegedly…..

  12. thesecplaysforkeeps says: Sep 26, 2011 1:51 PM

    @canesfangatorhater

    Its widely considered that FSU is more scandalous than UF. Sorry that Urban Meyer simply recruited the fastest players in the country. UF is a class program, get over it

    @blakeowen13

    Semantics. Flee means nothing. Wouldn’t be surprised if the cop was a Nole fan and wanted to give UF a hard time in the case with the Gator player

  13. canesfangatorhater says: Sep 26, 2011 1:56 PM

    Fleeing only means something when a cop is trying to get you to stop….. semantics…lol….and it was a UF campus cop. Probably not a Nole fan. Your striking out buddy. You should probably just let this go.

  14. burm61 says: Sep 26, 2011 2:02 PM

    @SEC Florida is a class program huh? ROFLMAO they had what 30 arrest in 2 years? Urban Meyer is a P.O.S and got out of UF before the NCAA traced him back to where Newton found out he could get paid to play. And Brandon Spikes didn’t know where the classroom was to take his final… The final was in the same classroom the class had been at all year. UF gets uneducated thugs who can’t spell their name and don’t deserve to go to college they deserve to work at Burger King.

  15. blakeowen13 says: Sep 26, 2011 2:06 PM

    Well said @burm61.

  16. grudenthediva says: Sep 26, 2011 2:56 PM

    “Its widely considered that FSU is more scandalous than UF. Sorry that Urban Meyer simply recruited the fastest players in the country. UF is a class program, get over it”

    Stats don’t lie. Look at the arrest reports for the last few years. Those hold more water than your baseless, blanket assumptions. Sorry bout it.

    “Semantics. Flee means nothing. Wouldn’t be surprised if the cop was a Nole fan and wanted to give UF a hard time in the case with the Gator player”

    Have you ever been to Gainesville? (I have. I got my MA there, actually). Bill Cervone and Co. have that shit on lockdown and even if charges are filed, they get taken care of almost immediately. I can’t believe you pulled the “cop must have been a Nole fan” excuse. How pathetic, yet hilarious.

  17. thesecplaysforkeeps says: Sep 26, 2011 3:40 PM

    @bumbum61

    Florida is a class program. ROFLMAO they won what 2 NC in 3 years? Urban Meyer is a GAS (gentleman and a scholar) and got out of UF because his brain tumor kicked. And Brandon Spikes was the spiritual leader of the best defense in college football. The final was in the same classroom the class had been at all year, and BS didn’t feel like taking it because he already had an A. UF gets uneducated thugs who can’t spell their name and don’t deserve to go to college, and turns them into first-class citizens who go on to have great NFL careers. They don’t deserve to work at Burger King.

  18. pb420 says: Sep 26, 2011 3:40 PM

    Wow, reading this thread, thought I should clarify my earlier comment. I was joking about the fact that he was busted on a scooter, not a dig @ the ACC or any other conference for that matter. Hope it came across that way.
    As a Gator alum, I know the disappointment we all as fans feel when a player on the team we follow makes a mistake, and it happens across the board, regardless of team or conference.
    I feel that Coach Muschamp is trying his best to do the right thing @ Florida, so far it has been refreshing to see. Hope that it continues.
    As a college fb fan, I wish G4 the best, as he is a very talented player, hope he gets a chance to redeem himself.

    @grudenthediva

    So I guess Penn State is one of the worst programs in the country, too?

  20. rolltide510 says: Sep 26, 2011 3:49 PM

    Hmmm, in this thread we have fans of various Florida schools arguing over which one has the most dumb thugs per capita. Pretty awesome.

  21. burm61 says: Sep 26, 2011 4:01 PM

    Not a fan of any Florida team they are all scum. Go out if the state of Florida and people ask me what the hell do they so down there? Even HIGH SCHOOL sports are corrupt down here and Meyer a scholar hahahahahahhahaha he is a scholar at sucking Tebow’s balls

  22. thesecplaysforkeeps says: Sep 26, 2011 4:15 PM

    I’m [n]ot a fan of any Florida team. [T]hey are all scum. [When I] [g]o out [o]f the state of Florida[,] and people ask me what the hell do they so do down there?

    Classic ACC/FSU education right there.

    SEC4L

  23. burm61 says: Sep 26, 2011 4:18 PM

    @SEC number one it was a smartphone with auto correct. Number 2 have some pride in your school, if you even went there, you had 30 arrest under 5 years with Meyer. He, as a head coach, is suppose to take care of the kids not give them an environment in which they believe they can do whatever they want. How can you be proud of a school like that?

  24. cburmester85 says: Sep 26, 2011 4:19 PM

    @thesecplaysforkeeps and let me guess you think Tim Tebow has a thorwing motion made for the NFL and the tooth fairy does exist?

  25. thesecplaysforkeeps says: Sep 26, 2011 4:29 PM

    @burm61

    Oh look at Mr. Flashy with his smart phone. You sound like every other 59-year-old aunt that cannot realize that auto-correct does not have the final say. The human clicks “send.” And half of those 30 arrests were dropped. And you didn’t answer my question about PSU…

    @cburmester85

    Tim Tebow will start by the end of the year. Cam Newton is already tearing it up. You don’t have to make your jealousy so obvious. SEC quarterbacks are the best in the business (Peyton Manning, Matt Stafford, Cam Newton, Jason Campbell, Jay Cutler, etc) And we have some talent on the way in Mallett, Tebow, McElroy.

  26. burm61 says: Sep 26, 2011 4:47 PM

    The only reason Tebow will start is because they will need to sell tickets not because he is good. Penn State was garbage before Paterno decided to start recruiting from the zoo like UF, FSU, Miami, and LSU. Add South Carolina on the list because they are getting investigated by the NCAA now. And @Sec you didn’t answer my question about how can you have any pride for a program that is ran like Florida. And before you criticize ACC schools let’s compare Duke, UNC, GT, UVA, and VT to Bama, LSU, and Florida

  27. thesecplaysforkeeps says: Sep 26, 2011 5:02 PM

    Ok Ill compare them

    Bama/LSU/UF NC past 10 years: 5

  28. blakeowen13 says: Sep 26, 2011 5:12 PM

    He is talking about academics. The main reason these players are there in the first place

  29. paulbrownsrevenge says: Sep 26, 2011 6:26 PM

    You guys don’t get it. The SEC is the best at everything. They own college football. President Camacho from Idiocracy is an Ole Miss alumni. The SEC controls the world. We just have to deal with it.

  30. gatorfan1 says: Sep 26, 2011 6:46 PM

    paulbrownsrevenge:

    I don’t know about owning the world…but the SEC sure as shit owns college football right now!

    Any bets on Alabama or LSU winning the NC this year. There’s no way any conference or it’s fans who dominated on this kind of scale, wouldn’t be pumping out their chests.

    So when do you think the streak will end 8, 9 years?

    I would think by now people would stop embarrassing themselves arguing about the superiority of the SEC in college football right now!

  31. cburmester85 says: Sep 26, 2011 10:20 PM

    @paulbrownsrevenge

    I would think by now you would stop embarrassing yourself by posting on this site. The only difference between Ohio State and many SEC schools is the SEC is good enough at it not to get caught… Yet

  32. paulbrownsrevenge says: Sep 27, 2011 6:02 PM

    The SEC is the best because they work like pirates together so they can’t be caught. They have the media in their pockets. All people care about is winning, not academics. In our sad society, thats what people want to see. No one cares about the Jim Leonhards of the world. No one cares when a guy graduates early, and goes on to have a successful life outside of the NFL.

    As for me embarrassing myself, piss off. All my SEC comments are mocking sec4life’s comments you moron.

  33. tbowblowsbigones1 says: Sep 28, 2011 7:58 AM

    Your right dude you dont see that in the sec… You only see players getting DUI for falling asleep at stops lights…players arrested for attempted armed RobbEry…players kicked out of school for cheating and selling stolen laptops..players in trouble for stomping someone’s head in at a bar..texting their girlfriends that they are going to die…
