Two Florida Gators baseball players arrested

Florida Gators sophomores A.J. Puk and Kirby Snead were arrested early Monday morning on the University of Florida campus and charged with criminal trespass — a third degree felony, Edgar Thomson of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

According to records at the Alachua County Jail, Puk and Snead were arrested after climbing a crane in a marked construction site without legal authority. The two were booked into Alachua County Jail at 1:08 a.m. and remain there while waiting to appear before a judge who will set their bond.

Pat Dooley of the Gainesville Sun reported that Kevin O’Sullivan has suspended both players indefinitely.

Puk is 6-3 on the season and leads the Gators with 45 strikeouts. Puk was recently taken out of the weekend rotation and has been coming out of the bullpen but had a productive outing on Saturday against South Carolina, picking up his sixth win in relief.

Snead has made 13 appearances this season and has a 4.91 ERA on the season.

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
