Last week Florida wide receiver Andre Debose was granted a sixth year of eligiblity by the NCAA after missing the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL. On Saturday night Debose was lucky he wasn't more seriously injured after he was allegedly pushed through a window.
According to a statement from the Gainesville police, Debose was in a house with three others when he got into an altercation with another person, Victor Watkins. During the argument Watkins reportedly pushing Debose through a window. DeBose was uninjured.
The situation then escalated when John Honeycutt became angry with Watkins for pushing Debose through the window. Here's what the police statement says happened next.
This angered Honeycutt who retrieved a handgun and threatened Watkins with it. However, Watkins immediately took the handgun from Honeycutt and then discharged several rounds into the ground outside the house.
Honeycutt now retrieved the rifle and fired several rounds into Watkins's SUV and into the ground in front of the house. All parties were transported to CID where GPD detectives conducted interviews. After an extensive investigation, detectives arrested Honeycutt for Aggravated Assault. All other parties were released.
So, you know, just another Saturday night with friends.
Seriously, though, it's just a good thing nobody was hurt.
