Grant Van Aman is a walk-on redshirt freshman punter at the University of Florida. Early Saturday morning, Van Aman ran a stop sign on his scooter right in front of a Gainesville cop who was preparing to pull into the intersection. Van Aman swerved and almost dropped the scooter, steadied the bike and pulled out his cell phone. The officer turned on his lights and followed Van Aman into a UF parking garage.
From there, Van Aman provided his driver’s license to one officer and told another officer he didn’t have a license on him. Van Aman, who will be 20 in September, admitted to drinking, then changed his answer. Then he admitted to being at Fat Daddy’s Bar, but denied drinking there. He refused multiple sobriety tests, explained that he was a criminal justice major, didn’t know his address and had never been to Gainesville before. He was then taken to Alachua County Jail where he refused two breath tests. He was booked around 4:30am.
The worst feeling in the world is when a cop turns his lights on behind you even if all he’s trying to do is pass you. #thankgod
