A driver who was pulled over on suspicion of DUI told deputies that he played football for the Gators and asked if that would affect his situation. It didn't, and the driver wasn't really a Gator.A DUI suspect in Gainesville falsely claimed to be a Florida football player in the hope of securing leniency. Interestingly enough, when I was a student at the University, I was stopped for jaywalking in Athens. While the Clarke County officer wrote me a ticket, I told him I was the backup placekicker for the Bulldogs. The officer proceeded to arrest me for crossing the street on a suspended license, giving a false name because I told him my name was "Kyle" when Kyle is actually my middle name, and emerging from a sidewalk. (I kid, I kid . . . but it sure tells you something about the culture in Gainesville, doesn't it?) Go 'Dawgs!
