Florida DT Dominique Easley To Possibly Be Charged

According to Antoya English of the St. Petersburg Times, Florida DT Dominique Easley could be charged with misdemeanor battery stemming from an incident involving a Florida Alabama football player after the Tide's win over the Gators earlier this year. The report claims that Easley tackled Reggie Myles outside of the Stadium in what is being described as an unprovoked attack.

More details below the jump.

UPD has also recommended criminal mischief, larceny and disorderly conduct charges for Myles based on his behavior after he contacted police on the night of the alleged attack. Myles was allegedly intoxicated and agitated when police arrived, which led to him being cited for public intoxication and criminal mischief.

This is not a good situation for the Florida football team, but this might be just one side of the story. I'm sure Easley was upset about the loss, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some trash talking going on either way that led to the incident. We'll have plenty more on this case as it evolves.
