University of Florida wide receiver, Frankie Hammond, was arrested for Driving Under the Influence in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 13th. Hammond, a 20 year old wide receiver, was stopped by authorities for allegedly swerving and driving faster than 45 mph in a 20 mph zone. When police made contact with Hammond they observed him to appear "uncoordinated" with bloodshot, glassy eyes and slurred speech. Suspecting Hammond was DUI, officers asked him to perform field sobriety tests to aide their investigation.
After evaluating his performance on the sobriety tests, UPD officers arrested him for Driving Under the Influence and requested Hammond give a breath sample. Hammond consented to the breath tests, which are used to determine your blood alcohol level. He supplied two breath samples of .188 and .191, both of which are more than double Florida's legal limit of .08. Officer's also reported that they found open bottles of whiskey while searching the vehicle.
Hammond was released from Alachua County Jail on his own recognizance. The University of Florida is currently suspending him from all team activities.
