Marquise Bryant, a Fort Myers Dunbar running back who committed to USF in October, is in trouble with the law again. He was previously arrested in 2013 with 1 felony and 2 misdemeanor charges.
Bryant, 18 and a student at Dunbar High School, was arrested Sunday morning around 230am after he allegedly attempted to choke a deputy. Bryant and another man were looking into cars windows early Sunday morning before the officer saw them.
When the officer stopped to question the two, one of the men ran off.
The paper also reported that Bryant then resisted arrest while the deputy was beginning to pat him down in search of a possible weapon after Bryant had tried to reach in his pocket.
After Bryant proceeded to resist, he was able to get his weapon out. However, the officer was able to subdue him from attempting further and release his K-9 partner from the vehicle.
This will place 3 more felony charges on Bryant’s account: resisting arrest with violence, assaulting an officer and carrying a concealed weapon.
This past season at Dunbar, Bryant, rushed for 1,078 yards and 14 touchdowns, according to MaxPreps.com.
How do you think colleges such as USF need to look at this and handle this? Do they continue to let him play or do they need to take action?
