Gators O-lineman hit with grand theft of motor vehicle charge

Florida v Tennessee Getty Images

Well then.

2013 is not getting off to a great start for Florida offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker. Per 247Sports, the redshirt freshman was booked into the Alachua County Jail this afternoon on charges of grand theft of a motor vehicle and a non-moving traffic violation.

University police tell 247Sports that Dunker was riding on a scooter that was reported stolen near Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

“He was observed by one of our police officers riding on a scooter that did not have a tag attached to the scooter,” major Brad Barber told the site. “Traffic stop was initiated, and during that stop it was determined that he was driving on a license that had been suspended. He was aware of that. The scooter, in fact, was stolen.”

The grand theft auto charge is a third-degree felony and the traffic violation is a second-degree misdemeanor. Bond has not yet been set for Dunker.

Dunker did not play in 2012. Through a statement from Florida, head coach Will Muschamp has he is aware of the situation and that he will address it when he returns from a recruiting trip.

    Really hope Coach Boom doesnt take the same approach to these issues that UM did. This kid needs to be gone from the program.

    Why the hell did he have to steal one? All the football players are given their own scooters and parking spots under BHG (not a joke – it’s how it’s been since at least Zook).

  8. Woody Bass says: Jan 16, 2013 4:25 PM

    Supposedly he bought it for $600

    Say what you will, but douchebags riding scooters around campus just doesn’t really happen at florida state.

    Yep, still hurting the lil nole fanboys is the fact that UF pummeled your sorry joke of a program this year. Some moron stealing a scooter doesn’t change that at all. With all the skeletons in fsu’s closet you have no room to criticize. The rest of the NCAA dares you to come to a real conference. Big 12, SEC, doesn’t matter. You’ll get blown out wherever you go. Have fun losing the recruiting battle.

    As always … Stay classy, Gators.

    pf420: Kind of like UF got blown out in their bowl game?

    I am not a Florida State guy, but a UF fan cannot throw stones. Your team got exposed in their bowl game by a Big East team.

    Isn’t that like getting beat up by a 2nd grader???

  13. pb420 says: Jan 16, 2013 4:45 PM

    As always og is on here trolling as soon as any bad news surrounding UF comes up. What a sad pathetic being you are. It’s comforting to know the Gators pissed you off to the extent that you resort to follow their news. All class right there.

  14. pb420 says: Jan 16, 2013 4:51 PM

    @my dixienormus:

    And haters are always gonna bring that up. It’s all you have so go for it. Louisville deserved to win that game and I tip my hat to them. Same thing happened to bama vs Utah in the sugar bowl and it strengthened them. Who’s your team that you can throw stones?

  15. scalpemseminoles says: Jan 16, 2013 4:54 PM

    what’s class is not kicking a man when he’s down, pb420. also,what’s class is not having 420 in your name. also, I don’t know any seminole fan who has said “I would rather be in the ACC than the big 12″.

  16. mydixienormus says: Jan 16, 2013 4:58 PM

    I am a Washington Husky fan. I realize UW had an average season.

    Just think it is funny that UF fans thumped their chests so hard this season after a couple 7 win seasons.

    I think the jury is still out on Muschamp. We’ll see.

    Good luck against Toledo and Georgia Southern next year!

    Actually, UF’s schedule looks tougher than most SEC teams next year.

    Gatorprof… Where are you??? How’s that glass house holding up???

  18. pb420 says: Jan 16, 2013 5:04 PM

    Oh and you coming on here isn’t kicking a man when he’s down? What a hypocrite you are. And if you have a problem with the 420 moniker it appears you are very judgmental as well. Typical of a bitter fan mired in mediocrity.

    I have tried to erase the UW vs. LSU game from my memory.

    What a piss poor display by UW.

    Looked like this:

    typical florida headline

  23. ninerfan4 says: Jan 16, 2013 6:23 PM

    Florida State fan should have a “days without arrest” counter. In this case it would be 9. Short term memory must not be their strong suit. Still kind of looking for what the strong suit is.

    I assume he will be gone in a matter of weeks…. he was going to compete for a starting job but farewell…

    what ever happen to teams losing? why is everything exposed or epic. ie that was an epic win by bama or nd got exposed. there has to be more then a couple of words to describe things. are we all becoming tweens

    That’s right.

    At Florida State, you just have quarterbacks parking in handicapped parking spaces.

    He probably figured he didn’t have to follow the rules in the real world like he did at the SEC school Florida. He stole the scooter instead of a motorcycle because he didn’t have to have a license to ride the scooter. That would require being able to read the drivers test for the license.
