NO CHARGES IN GATOR MISFIRING. DEE WEBB CELEBRATES BY FIRING HOWITZER INTO EMPTY APARTMENT.

New, 13 comments

Florida WR Kenneth Tookes won't be charged in the accidental discharge of an AR-15 at Dee Webb's Gainesville apartment, and neither will anyone else, evidently. GPD has dropped the case citing insufficient evidence of intentional wrongdoing. If we were total homers here, we'd be dancing on the ceiling in our Lionel Richie sweaters, but it's hard to get too excited about someone on your football team NOT being charged with something for messing around with an AR-15.

(We just had a thought, though: most accusations of accidental discharge in Gainesville do happen in apartments, though most don't result in a hole in the wall, unless you've got some serious prostate problems we'd like you to see a physician about immediately. In this instance Tooke's accidental discharge of Webb's toy scared three women simultaneously. Innuendo just scuttled this paragraph completely, so we'll move on...)

The other burning--and they're always burning--question in this case is Meyer's handling of it. The incident doesn't merit a complete removal from the team, but a lack of action undermines UM's mad bastard stance on discipline. What he does sets tone on a team not too far removed from Zookdom and rampant FnDC. Meyer needs to come down in dramatic fashion here, or risk a slip in players' fear of his wrath.
