BY foxsports • July 27, 2015

Florida players Adam Lane and Caleb Brantley reportedly are facing misdemeanor charges after being cited for leaving a bowling alley without paying their tabs.

Yahoo Sports reported Sunday that Lane, a running back, and Brantley, a defensive tackle, have been charged with "Fraud Swindle: Defraud Innkeeper under $300," according to court records. The charge is categorized as a second-degree misdemeanor.

According to website In All Kinds of Weather, the incident occurred the evening of July 4, when the two allegedly left Splitz Bowling Alley in Gainesville without paying for food they had purchased. Brantley's tab totaled $42.34 and Lane's totaled $16.93. The charges were issued during the past week.

Florida has not yet announced any discipline for the two players.

Brantley appeared in all of the Gators' 12 games last year as a redshirt freshman and had 21 tackles as a redshirt freshman. Lane, a junior-to-be, appeared only sporadically last season before racking up 109 yards a touchdown on 16 carries in Florida's Birmingham Bowl win over East Carolina.
