University of Football players in trouble after BB gun incident


Several University of Florida football players drew campus police attention after pointing what turned out to be airsoft rifles at other students near their dormitories during an apparent argument.

The Gators are under fire after two of the players -who had been shouting something the others- drew airsoft guns as they traversed from their residential complex to the nearby baseball field.

According to a University of Florida Police report obtained by the Palm Beach Post, both weapons were confirmed to be airsoft rifles, operated by wide receiver Kadarius Toney and defensive tackle Kyree Campbell.

In the aftermath of the faux shooting, several of the students lied to police about the incident.

While no criminal charges were brought up, six of the seven players involved have to appear before the UF’s Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution department. For lying to the police, tight end Kemore Gamble, wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland, quarterback Emory Jones and wide receiver Rick Wells are likely to receive disciplinary action.

No injuries were reported.
