In the past two days, the Florida Gators football team has added four verbal commitments: three in 2016 and one in 2017. And everything seemed to be going well for Jim McElwain and his staff.
But things just hit a bump in the road. According to InAllKindsOfWeather.com’s Neil Shulman, two Florida Gators have been cited for a dine-and-dash-incident from July 4.
According to Shulman’s source, running back Adam Lane Jr and defensive lineman Caleb Brantley were a part of a group that compiled a $90 tab at Splitz Bowling Alley in Gainesville, Fla.
Apparently, Brantley was responsible for $42.34, and Lane racked up $16.93 of the bill. Although neither player has been arrested it’s legally defined as a second-degree misdemeanor and labeled as “FRAUD-SWINDLE: DEFRAUD INNKEEPER UNDER 300 DOLLARS.”
Lane has reportedly settled his portion of the tab already.
Here are the court cases for the two of them:
