No Charges Against UF’s Easley

Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley will not be formally charged for an altercation with former Alabama cornerback Reggie Myles outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium after the Tide’s 38-10 win last month.

The Florida State Attorney’s Office decided that both parties behaved badly, but all witness to the episode provided contradictory evidence and some of the witnesses were three sheets to the wind as well.

State Attorney Bill Cervone said: “There are no clean hands in this situation.  There is also no harm done, despite protestations to the contrary, that outweighs these factors.  Any harm to either party is in essence canceled out by the harm to the other party.”

Now that’s a ruling you don’t see everyday.

SEC Headlines – 10/27/11 Part One

I’m afraid today’s going to be a rushed day with lots of headlines.  Projects away from the site are eating into my time today.  My apologies.

1.  Florida’s defense needs to create more takeaways.

2.  Will Muschamp allowed two players to walk away from his program earlier this week.

3.  Gator defensive lineman Dominique Easley is in hot water after getting into a scuffle with former Alabama player Reggie Myles outside the stadium following the teams’ game this year.

4.  The Florida-Georgia rivalry has had its share of unsportsmanlike acts in recent years… but it was “The Stomp” in 2007 that rekindled the rivalry.

5.  Here are five keys to a Bulldog victory on Saturday.

6.  Georgia wideout Malcolm Mitchell is now “doubtful” for this weekend’s game.

7.  They’re already covering basketball scrimmages in Lexington.  Terrence Jones scored 52 with 16 rebounds last night.

8.  The Cats also have a football game this weekend, and it would help their cause if tailback CoShik Williams could rush for another 148 yards this week.

9.  South Carolina’s Bruce Ellington is questionable for Saturday with a hamstring injury.

10.  Steve Spurrier said earlier this week that Ellington — a receiver — might back up Connor Shaw… showing once again that the coach no longs has his old touch with quarterbacks.

11.  Tennessee receiver Da’Rick Rogers — who showed up quarterback Matt Simms with some serious head-shaking following an incompletion last week — is happy to have the “gunslinger” Justin Worley under center.

12.  Vol coaches want to get more out of defensive end Jacques Smith.

13.  James Franklin isn’t interested in talking about Vanderbilt’s bowl chances just yet.

14.  The Commodores are bracing for Arkansas’ passing game.

Ex-Bama Players Accuses Curent Florida Player Of Assault

Now here’s a weird one for you.  After Alabama finished assaulting Florida at The Swamp last Saturday night, one former Tide player claims that he was assaulted outside the stadium by a current Gator player.

University of Florida police are currently investigating whether UF defensive lineman Dominique Easley attacked former Alabama defensive back Reggie Myles (1998-2001).  UFPD says that they have not yet confirmed that Easley was the attacker.

Myles claims that he was tackled from behind and that the action was totally unprovoked.  The attacker dropped a cell phone which Myles picked up and gave to police.  According to Myles, Easley’s “parents were asking me for the phone back.”

Myles was subsequently charged with public intoxication and criminal mischief.

“It was based on the way he was behaving when we were trying to sort everything out,” a police spokesman said.  “It stemmed from him being attacked.  The battery, him being battered, is a separate case.  The charges against him were entirely based on his disorderly behavior following that, and I understand he was extremely agitated.  He’d just been hit from behind by an unknown assailant, and was scraped up pretty good.  I understand him being upset.  Unfortunately, we couldn’t get him to calm down.”
