Erving Walker cited for alleged theft of taco

Point guard Erving Walker, playing his last game in a Florida Gators uniform just under one week ago, was cited early Friday morning for two misdemeanors after allegedly stealing a taco from a street vendor and evading police.

According to an arrest report from the Gainesville Police Department obtained by the Palm Beach Post and Gator Country, Walker ordered a $3 taco from a cart in downtown Gainesville, FL and chose to run away rather than paying after being handed the food.

An officer eventually tracked down Walker but he continued to run until the officer and “several marked patrol cars” found him again. He reportedly admitted to stealing the taco but claimed he was “just playing around.”

Walker has been charged with a pair of misdemeanors for petty theft and resisting arrest without violence and received a notice to appear in court on April 19 at 9 a.m.
