Daniel McMillian was a linebacker at the University of Florida, who just finished up his senior year as a member of the Gators football team. While most college football players are in the news this time of year due to their status in the upcoming NFL Draft, McMillan is all over the internet for a much darker reason. On Thursday night, McMillian was arrested on charges of sexual battery and kidnapping/false imprisonment.
Via Florida 247 Sports, here are the disturbing details of McMillian’s arrest.
According to a Gainesville Police Department report, the alleged victim is an employee of a company that McMillian was a customer of. She went to McMillian’s apartment for “legitimate professional reasons,” where McMillian reportedly locked her in his room after she entered and exposed his genitals before grabbing her.
The victim was “physically shaking and hysterically crying” while speaking with law enforcement after kicking McMillian in the genitals and fleeing the apartment.
The former Gators player is charged with a first-degree felony for sexual battery and a third-degree felony for kidnapping/false imprisonment. He remained in the Alachua County Jail as of 10:45 a.m. ET on Friday.
Jesus Christ, that sounds awful. Let’s hope that she is ok and that justice is served. McMillan’s bond has been set at $40,000, and we’ll update this post if any new information comes to light.
