The troubling saga of Deiondre Porter continued Monday night, as the ex-Gators cornerback was arrested by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on an out-of-county warrant stemming from an armed robbery case. The news was first reported by Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times.
In October, the 20-year-old Porter was dismissed from the Florida football team after being arrested on four felony charges (one count of aggravated battery, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent and one charge of firing a weapon into a dwelling) and a misdemeanor. That incident allegedly involved Porter firing a gun at a wall near the head of his pregnant girlfriend during an altercation. The case remains open.
Porter appeared in four games last season as a redshirt freshman. He originally signed with the Gators as a three-star prospect out of Jefferson (Tampa) High School.
