Mr. Hornsby? Please Leave Now. Thanks.

From The Gainesville Sun and EDSBS...

Jamar Hornsby, a University of Florida football player, was released on his own recognizance after turning himself in Friday morning on charges of credit card theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Hornsby, 21, was allegedly using a credit card issued to Ashley Slonina, a University of Florida student who died in an October 2007 motorcycle accident in which walk-on UF football player, Michael Guilford, also died.

The card abuse started Oct. 13, 2007, the day after the girl's death, according to court records and involved a BP gas card.

I wish I had a joke here. Some how, this makes Florida's history of gun play seem fun. Hornsby is innocent until presumed guilty, but I think a preemptive expulsion is necessary here.
