Florida RB Mark Thompson appears to have another legal situation on his hands.
Less than two months after Thompson was suspended by the team after he was cited for marijuana possession, Thompson’s name again appears in the records of the Alachua County Circuit Court.
According to court records, a sworn complaint affidavit was filed by the Gainesville Police Department against Thompson on Monday, Dec. 12. It included one misdemeanor charge for “TRESPASSING: PROPERTY NOT STRUCTURE OR CONVEY.” It is a first-degree misdemeanor charge.
According to Rivals.com’s Inside the Gators, here’s a description the incident allegedly involving Thompson:
“At about 2 p.m. last Thursday, Thompson was located inside the fenced compound at Ultimate Towing. Thompson stated to GPD that he slipped through a gap in the fence in an attempt to contact employees. He then showed the law enforcement officer the gap, which was passable but still clearly meant to bar entry, per court records.”
While Thompson, who was a coveted JUCO transfer, has seemingly made more waves with his alleged off-the-field issues than on the field in his first season with the Gators. Playing in nine games for Florida, Thompson has rushed for 295 yards and two touchdowns on 66 attempts.
The former NJCAA All-American from Dodge City (Kansas) Community College has just a combined nine rushing attempts in the last six Florida football games.
