Former Florida Gators linebacker Daniel McMillian was arrested Thursday on a first-degree felony charge of attempted sexual battery and third-degree felony kidnapping-false imprisonment.
Still a student at Florida, McMillian finished his career with the Gators this past season but has remained in Gainesville to continue workouts and participate in Pro Scout Day at the team’s indoor practice facility. He is currently in Alachua County Jail on $40,000 bail.
According to the arrest report provided by the Gainesville Police Department, the victim visited McMillian’s apartment “for legitimate professional reasons” as she’s an employee of a company at which McMillian was a customer.
When the victim entered McMillian’s room, he allegedly locked the door behind her, stood in front of it to block the exit and lowered his shorts to expose his genitals.
After the victim told McMillian to let her out of the room, he allegedly resisted and instead “grabbed her buttocks with his hand, eventually grabbing her skirt when she tried to get away. “The [victim] then kicked [McMillian] in the genitals, unlocked the door, and ran out of the apartment to get help” while scratching her arm on the door.
The responding officer said the victim was “physically shaking and hysterically crying” at the time of the arrest.
