A Gainesville-Alachua County Drug Task force investigation led to an arrest, and the confiscation of a large amount of prescription drugs from a Gainesville residence. More than 1,000 tablets of Roxicodone with an estimated street value of more than $18,000 was seized, along with one half-ounce of cocaine, a loaded firearm, 100 grams of cannabis, and $10,000 in U.S. currency. Christopher Woods was arrested at the residence, and booked at the Alachua County jail.
White nationalist Richard Spencer's speech Thursday at the University of Florida prompted a state of emergency, carried a $600,000 tab and drew more than 2,500 demonstrators. But law enforcement summarized the contentious event, which devolved into an antagonistic affair, as “a mostly peaceful day.”
