Gators freshman offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker arrested
Alachua County Jail
According to Alachua County Jail records, Florida redshirt freshman offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker is in jail.
Dunker was charged with driving with a suspended license, a second degree misdemeanor, and grand theft auto, which is a third degree felony.
The offensive lineman was riding a scooter when he was pulled over by UFPD near Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for following a truck too closely and not having a license tag on the vehicle. Once stopped, officers discovered the scooter had been reported stolen.
Dunker was also arrested in November for driving without a seat belt and directing foul language toward a police officer. The freshman was an All-American coming out of high school, but saw no action this past season as he redshirted.
