Joiner Update

Apparently, Tony Joiner had made arrangements to pick up the car and had the $76 tow fee. The gate was left unlocked, so he did not break any locks or anything to get in. No one from the tow company showed up when they were supposed to, so Tony got impatient, took the car, and was going to worry about the fee later. One legal expert thinks he’ll get charged with trespassing, a misdemeanor, not burglary.

The owner of the towing company for his part, says it’s “all a misunderstanding,” and called Joiner’s arrest “Crazy.”

UPDATE 9:10 pm

Joiner did not practice on Tuesday, and Coach Meyer said he will be monitoring the situation. The owner of Watson’s Towing has said he does not intend to press charges, though the state attorney general can still press charges on behalf of the State of Florida.

    nice site. I added it to my links. BTW, I loves this Meyer quote. It is like he is powerless:

    “I know college kids do stuff,” Meyer said. “I’d rather not (have them go out) after games but I’m not a police officer either. So I can’t lock them down completely, I just lecture and teach. There are a lot of people out at 2 a.m. I’d rather our guys not be out.”

    Thanks for the kind words. There’s only so much a coach can say or do without becoming a babysitter.
