Florida tight end A.C. Leonard has been arrested on charges of simple domestic battery, according to a report.

Florida Gators rising sophomore tight end A.C. Leonard has been arrested, Robbie Andreu reports. Leonard is known as a highly talented player with somewhat of a rocky background and whose recruitment from Jacksonville took a number of public turns.

Via Andreu:

Leonard put both hands in the alleged victim's chest and neck area and shoved her to the ground, causing her to strike her head on a dog cage, according to the police report.

Leonard then allegedly told the victim to gather her belongings and leave. According to the report, Leonard then grabbed the victim by the hair and attempted to drag her out of the apartment, locking her out.

The Gators' offense didn't make much ado about tight ends in 2011, with only Jordan Reed accruing significant catches. Leonard caught eight balls for 99 yards, ranking him second at the position, even though he suffered a serious injury in the summer. He saw time in five games. Next in line would've been Gerald Christian, but he has already transferred out of the program.
