Unfortunate news out of Tampa this week as wide receiver Chris Dunkley has been arrested by the Hillsborough County Sherriff’s office and suspended indefinitely by USF head football coach Skip Holtz. Dunkley was arrested Saturday night following the Bulls loss to FSU.
“Our players have an obligation to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner on and off the field,” coach Skip Holtz said in a statement. “Due to the serious nature of this matter, we have suspended Chris indefinitely from all team activities.”
The wide out was arrested for beating his girlfriend, and has been charged with a first-degree misdemeanor.
Dunkley’s arrest report states the following:
“Forced the victim to the floor and began to punch and strike the victim in the arms and legs causing bruising…grabbed the victim’s hair and forced her into a closet where he began to strike the victim with a computer cord on the back of the thighs, causing several lacerations.”
The saga of the sophomore wide out continues. He was the No. 77 recruit coming out of high school, according to Rivals.com. Dunkley chose the Florida Gators before transferring to USF.
