Redshirt sophomore receiver Frankie Hammond, who saw limited action last year as a backup, is having his Gator actions of all sorts curtailed with extreme prejudice thanks to how he chose to spend his weekend (emphasis added):â†µ
The "uncoordinated" Hammond – with slurred speech, bloodshot and "glassy" eyes -- failed his sobriety field tests and registered breath samples of 0.188 and 0.191, according to the report. The legal limit for blood alcohol content is 0.08. Police found two open 750-ml bottles of Crown Royal whiskey in Hammond's tan Mercury, according to the report, one in the back seat and one in the trunk.â†µ
The choice of Crown here is commendable for so young a drunkard, but the central question remains: How are you supposed to reach the trunk from the front seat, even if there's a pass-through? It's this marked lack of forward thinking, of considering and accounting for all obstacles, that casts doubt on Hammond's chances of becoming an elite wide receiver in Gainesville. That, and the high-profile arrest.
