Jessamen Dunker

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.
