According to a police report, Florida safety Tony Joiner
was arrested on Tuesday and charged with felony burglary, making
the young football player the eight member of the team to get
into legal trouble since Florida won the national championship.
Tony Joiner was arrested outside an impound lot in Gainesville,
Fl. and was accused of entering the impound lot about 5:00am to
retrieve his girlfriend's car, which was being held in for a $76
towing bill owed. The police claims that witnesses saw Tony
Joiner entering the lot, driving the car out and was confronted
while closing the gate to the impound. He then drove the car
back in the lot and waited for the police to arrive. Joiner told
the police that his intentions were to pay the bill, but got
Stan Forron, the owner of the towing
company claims, however, that the whole thing is one big
misunderstanding. Forron says that an early arrangement was made
for Tony Joiner to come to the lot, pay and pick up the car.
Forron plans to plead to the State Attorney's office to drop the
charges against the Florida football player.
Tony Joiner was taken to the Alachua
County Jail and later released on his own recognizance.
