Florida QB Treon Harris is under investigation for sexually assaulting a fellow Florida student, the university announced Monday. He is suspended from all team activities during the investigation.
The alleged incident happened on campus early Sunday morning, the school said in a release sent out Monday. University of Florida Police Department logs show a complaint of “sexual battery” was filed early Monday morning regarding an incident in the Springs Residential Complex. The police log says the incident occurred between 2:30-3:25 a.m. ET, which is roughly 12 hours after Harris came off the bench to lead the Gators’ comeback victory at Tennessee on Saturday.
Harris had not been arrested as of 1 p.m. ET, according to UFPD spokesman Maj. Brad Barber. He referred further questions to university spokesperson Janine Sykes.
“We have no tolerance for sexual assault on our campus,” UF president Bernie Machen said in the school’s statement. “The university is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for every member of the UF community. We must strive to protect all of our students from sexual harassment and assault, and do everything in our power to promote a safe learning environment.”
Harris led two fourth-quarter scoring drives, passing and running for 41 yards after replacing starting QB Jeff Driskel
