GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - State prosecutors are dropping a felony burglary charge against Florida safety Tony Joiner.
This clears the way for the senior to play at top-ranked LSU.
Joiner was arrested around early Tuesday morning for allegedly trying to take his girlfriend's car out of a towing company's impound lot.
The chief investigator for the State Attorney's Office says the charge was dropped today because the victim "believes it's a big misunderstanding." Spencer Mann says the victim does not want to
pursue criminal charges.
Joiner practiced with the ninth-ranked Gators this week.
Coach Urban Meyer says in a statement that Joiner "is no longer a captain of the Gator football team and he will pay a heavy price for his behavior internally for the next four weeks."
