GAINESVILLE – Florida freshman offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker appeared in Alachua County court on Thursday morning and was released on his own recognizance after being arrested Wednesday for allegedly stealing a motor scooter and driving with a suspended license.


Dunker said he paid $600 for the scooter. He is to not have contact with the alleged victim in the case. He was pulled over for not having a motor vehicle tag and a check showed the scooter had been reported stolen.


Gainesville attorney Huntley Johnson, who is representing Dunker, said he’s uncertain if he has a receipt for the sale but noted $600 would have been a fair price for a used scooter in the condition it was in.


“I’d hate to count the number of times I had a transaction where I didn’t have a receipt,” Johnson said.


Dunker is expected to compete for a starting job on the 2013 team, pending the current situation.
