GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A University of Florida football player
has been arrested and shot with a Taser gun after a fight broke out
near a club.
Gainesville Police spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said police saw UF cornerback Janoris Jenkins punch another man in the head shortly
after 2 a.m. Saturday. When Jenkins continued fighting, they shot him with the Taser, and he tried to run away.
He was arrested on charges of resisting arrest without violence and posted bail later Saturday.
Kameg said Jenkins told police the fight started because he thought someone was going to steal the gold chain around his neck.
Jenkins' attorney Huntley Johnson said he believed his client acted in self-defense and that prosecution would be deferred or charges would be dismissed.
