With one of their biggest games looming, will coach Meyer suspend their defensive end Carlos Dunlap for his DUI arrest?
Dunlap,20, was arrested at 3:25 a.m and was later released on his own recognizance six hours later from the Alachua County Jail. Judge Mary Day Coker fussed at Dunlap for underage drinking, and said he cannot possess alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription drugs that are not prescribed for him.
Judge Coker released Dunlap without bond because he has no prior adjudications and no failures to appear in court.
Carlos Dunlap was arrested after an officer was dispatched after someone reported a reckless driver near campus. The officer spotted the car stopped at an intersection and noticed a red 2000 Chrysler not moving through several green lights.
Carlos Dunlap was found slumped over and asleep at the wheel. The officer woke him up through his cracked window, but he “would only open his eyes momentarily and then fall back asleep.”
The police officer then unlocked the door, put the car in park and turned off the ignition. Dunlap got out and “was very groggy and had difficulty speaking and listening to instructions.”
Dunlap failed a field sobriety test, then refused a breathalyzer and was arrested.
Do you think Dunlap should be suspended?
