Erving Walker is not going out in style.
After leading the Florida Gators to an appearance in the Elite Eight, the senior guard ended his basketball career on a sour note after allegedly stealing a $3 taco early Saturday morning.
Walker ordered the taco from a street vendor in downtown Gainesville, then took off without paying. When approached by a police officer, Walker fled the scene. It took several marked patrol cars to eventually stop him and he was arrested around 1 a.m. According to the arresting officer, Walker said he was "just playing around."
In the police report, one officer wrote Walker admitted "when he ran off with the taco he knew that he had not paid for it and that he was stealing food."Full Story >>
