Florida Gator Football Player Charged With DUI

So far, this summer has been a bleak one for University of Florida football player Frankie Hammond, Jr. Last weekend Hammond was arrested in Alachua County on charges of driving under the influence and possession. University police allege that the 20-year-old sophomore receiver was speeding, swerving, and driving with two open containers of whiskey early Sunday morning on June 13th. 

According to police reports provided by the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, Hammond was exceeding 45 miles per hour in a 20 mile per hour zone on Gale Lemerand Drive on the University of Florida campus at 2:09 am. On Monday he was released from jail after appearing in front of a judge. As a result of the incident, the star receiver has been suspended from all team activities.
