GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP)—A Florida football player was kicked off the team Friday after turning himself in on charges he used the gas credit card of a woman who was killed along with another player in a motorcycle accident.
Jamar Hornsby, a 21-year-old junior safety, learned Thursday that a judge had issued a warrant for his arrest on charges he used the dead woman’s gas card for six months, so he surrendered on charges of credit card theft and fraudulent use of a credit card, lawyer Huntley Johnson said.
Hornsby was released from jail several hours later on his own recognizance.
It was not immediately clear how Hornsby got the card. Johnson declined to comment on the specifics of the case, but said they would cooperate with authorities. Read More from Yahoo Sports
Florida coach Urban Meyer announced a few days ago that Hornsby is no longer apart of the Gators Football Program. Thank God! The worst part of this whole situation is; he used it not once or twice, but more than 70 times. This was just a cold hearted, sick crime. This tells you how secure it is to keep a credit card in your wallet. Even if you are dead people can and will make you bend over.
