Florida DB Munroe Charged With Theft

If you've ever had a run-in with your UPD parking enforcement(in other words, if you attended college), then you'll be inclined to view young Dorian as more of a modern day Turk 182 than a common criminal.

Florida DB Munroe Charged With Theft: "DESTIN — University of Florida safety Dorian Munroe was arrested last week and charged with theft after Munroe admitted to a UF police officer that he had removed a UPD ''boot'' from one of his tires and placed it in his trunk.

Munroe was charged with a third-degree felony, according to a police report, because the boot was valued at $385. UF's police department places the boots on vehicles whose owners either have three or more outstanding parking tickets or five guilty citations within a year.

According to the report, Munroe was called to UPD headquarters on May 22. There, according to the report, Munroe told officer Brian Boyd that he had taken the boot off his 1987 Mercedes. The boot was removed from Munroe's trunk, and Munroe was arrested and transported to Alachua County jail. He was released Wednesday.

UF athletic department spokesman Steve McClain said Tuesday that Gators coach Urban Meyer is aware of the incident and that there is an internal process in place to handle such matters. Munroe, a rising sophomore from Miami, is expected to compete for significant playing time this season.

''Dorian is a heck of a kid,'' Meyer said. ''It'll come out.''"
