Florida dismisses DT Brown following arrest

Florida defensive tackle Gary Brown has been dismissed from the

football team following his arrest last weekend.

School spokesman Steve McClain says Brown has a history of “not

meeting a set of expectations” at Florida and is no longer part of

the program.

Brown, a redshirt freshman from Greensboro, is charged with two

counts of misdemeanor battery following a dispute at a weekend

party in Gainesville. According to a police report, Brown is

accused of striking two women who were trying to kick people out of

the party.

One woman told investigators Brown slapped her in the face.

Another said he slapped her arms, causing scratches. Neither victim

required medical attention.
