Dee Finley Arrested, Charged With Felony

Well, it had been a while since the last Florida Gators arrest, I guess: Dee Finley was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest with violence. From The Alligator:

Officer William Sasser pulled Finley over at 1:49 p.m. after Finley drove his scooter around a barricade at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Sasser asked for his license and registration, but Finley told the officer he was late and did not want to give him the information, according to the arrest report.

When Sasser told Finley he could not leave, Finley started his scooter and tried to take off, but Sasser grabbed his left wrist. Finley then snatched his hand away and "squared" to Sasser while still straddling his scooter, according to the report.

Sasser proceeded to whip out his department-issued Taser and told Finley to put his hands behind his back. Finley obliged.

The count of resisting arrest with violence is a third-degree felony in Florida. On the bright side, Finley at least didn't make the same mistake Andrew Meyer did, smartly avoiding a date with a bunch of volts.

More on this story as it develops, but you can count on Finley being suspended for at least the Tennessee game. Also, see SB Nation Atlanta for the definitive take on why trying to intimidate someone while riding a scooter ain't gonna work.
