Florida tight end AC Leonard has been in the news quite a bit lately. In February he was arrested for allegedly shoving his girlfriends and then dragging her out of his apartment by here hair and feet. Nice guy.
Will Muschamp said such behavior would not be tolerated and immediately suspended the sophomore-to-be. Then, just a week ago, Leonard returned to spring practice… though UF’s coach said that didn’t mean he would play in the spring game (gasp!) or this fall.
A day after Leonard returned to practice, the State Attorney’s Office in Gainesville decided to push through with a charge of misdemeanor battery against the player, shining some bad light for the UF program and Muschamp.
Yesterday, Leonard pled nolo contendre — that’s “no contest” to you and me — to a single count of misdemeanor battery and he accepted six months of probation. He’ll also got the usual court costs, anger management punishments. And he’ll not be allowed to have contact with the ex-girlfriend.
Muschamp said in a press release yesterday: “As I stated last week, AC has a number of things he has to work through before his status for the fall is addressed.”
Probably at top of the list — stop dragging girls around by their hair and feet.
