Florida Commit QB Ja’Juan Story Arrested For Battery
University of Florida commitment Ja’Juan Story was arrested late Sunday night after police were called following a fracas during which Story said he was trying to break up a fight between four women, according to the Gainesville Sun.
Story, 18, texted Edward Aschoff of the Gainesville Sun on Monday that he was trying to break up a fight that involved the mother of his brother’s child and three other women.
“When I turned around, her and a woman and her two daughters was about to fight,” Story said in a text message. “So I came over because there was knives and I took a box cutter from my brother’s (girlfriend), but one of the other girls had two knives. I tried to tell her to leave but she wasn’t listening.”
Story is a 6-foot-4, 190-pound quarterback for Brooksville Nature Coast and is projected to likely play wide receiver in college. Gators officials have not commented on the situation as of yet.
