Andre Debose found himself in the middle of a heated confrontation Saturday evening while eating dinner in Gainesville. The incident included the Florida Gators wide receiver being pushed into a window and a gun.
The Gainesville Police Department provided details on their Facebook page:
At 6:30pm Saturday, officers responded to an armed confrontation involving at least 2 subjects in the front yard of the house that were reportedly armed with a handgun and a rifle.
When officers arrived, they found an SUV parked in front of the house with numerous bullet holes and shell casings in the road. One subject retreated into the house but came out and was secured within moments. Investigation determined that John Mark Honeycutt W/M 7/1/90, Andre Debose B/M 9/12/90, Victor Watkins II B/M 12/20/89 and Kristan Lipham W/F were eating together in the house.
Debose and Watkins got into an argument resulting in Watson pushing Debose into a window. The glass broke, but Debose was not injured. This angered Honeycutt who retrieved a handgun and threatened Watkins with it. However, Watkins immediately took the handgun from Honeycutt and then discharged several rounds into the ground outside the house.
Honeycutt now retrieved the rifle and fired several rounds into Watkins’s SUV and into the ground in front of the house. All parties were transported to CID where GPD detectives conducted interviews. After an extensive investigation, detectives arrested Honeycutt for Aggravated Assault. All other parties were released.
It sounds like a classic case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Debose has had his share of tough luck recently. He missed the entire 2013 season after tearing his ACL. But the good news for him is that the NCAA granted him a sixth-year of eligibility and Debose should be back on the field in 2014.
