FSU freshman becomes second ‘Nole to be arrested in three days

Florida State Seminoles Logo

It wasn’t a great weekend for Florida State in terms of its players being law abiding citizens.

Earlier today, we noted that FSU cornerback  Avis Commack turned himself in on Friday to police after an arrest warrant was issued to his name in connection to a stolen iPad.

Now, multiple media outlets are reporting this morning that freshman linebacker Arrington Jenkins was arrested on Sunday by Tallahassee police for his alleged involvement in vehicular theft.

Police reports from Sunday claim Tallahassee PD received a call that a green dirt bike was stolen that day. The victim stated there were skid marks on the street that led to a location nearby — about 1/10 of a mile away.

No one at the residence was home when police knocked on the door, but the property manager identified the residents to be Jenkins and another individual. Police then called Jenkins and told him to return to the residence.

Jenkins admitted he stole the bike, which he claims was laying on the ground, to put in his apartment, and that “anyone who leaves a motorcycle out should expect to have it stolen.”

Jenkins posted $5,000 bail and was at FSU’s practice on Sunday. Coach Jimbo Fisher, nor Florida State, has commented on the incident yet.

    Does anybody know what the arrest rate is for football players versus the general student population?

    And this is a kid getting his education for FREE while hard working, intelligent and respectful kids are in debt before they graduate.

    Arrington Jenkins sounds like a real piece of work. Florida State must be proud.

    So Arrington left skidmarks from the scene of the theft to HIS house lol. Not exactly a pre-med student Im guessing. And to his fellow Noles- “keep your wallets locked up during practice”

    “anyone who leaves a motorcycle out should expect to have it stolen.”

    Can we just go ahead and set aside a jail cell for this genius? He’ll be needing one long-term, probably sooner rather than later. And give his scholarship to a criminal who isn’t an absolute retard.

    That’s why these guys go to Felon State University. Seems like the criminal element has moved from Gaynsville to tallahalfassee.

    ^ He is what he eats.

    And anyone with 305 in their name, well, clearly you must have paid a lot of attention in your ESL classes at FIU or Miami-Dade because a Cane “fan” who tries to accuse any other school of impropriety after what they have been up to the last, oh I dont know, forever, is an oblivious idiot. Go crank up the Pitbull records and dance your tail off until your mom gets back from her day shift at Pollo Tropical.

    Just because Miami is a cultural melting pot doesn’t mean you have to hate on others who get exposed to something more than country music. You should be quite, your ignorance is showing.

    Brutusbuckeye – don’t know the answer to your specific question. However, there is an article in USA Today stating that “by age 23 30.8% of Americans have been arrested for something. I see no reason to believe that football players would somehow be exempt from this.

    Not excusing……just saying……

    He has clearly never seen the show “Bait Car”.

    You should reconsider going back to grade school. You don’t start sentences with the word And. Also you need to learn the proper way to write a compound sentence. Tell you mom to beg for her job back at the Waffle House so, that my mother dosen’t have to pay for her Medicaid. Maybe then she can regain custody of your toothless sister AKA girlfriend.
