Florida OL Jessamen Dunker, charged with stealing scooter, released from county jail

Florida offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker has been released from the Alachua County Jail.

Judge Denise R. Ferrero released Dunker on his own recognizance Thursday, a day after the redshirt freshman was arrested and charged with stealing a scooter. Ferrero told Dunker to have no contact with the alleged victim.

Dunker is charged with vehicle theft, a third-degree felony, and driving with a suspended license, a misdemeanor.

He was pulled over for riding a scooter on campus without a license plate. After police checked, it was determined the scooter had been reported stolen.

But Dunker's attorney, Huntley Johnson, says his client paid $600 for the scooter and was unaware it had been stolen.

Dunker, from Boynton Beach, is expected to battle for a starting job this spring.
