TWO BITS: Van Aman’s DUI, Zunino’s walk-off

1 » Florida Gators redshirt freshman walk-on punter Grant Van Aman was arrested by Gainesville Police early Saturday morning for driving under the influence. According to the police report, Van Aman was pulled over at 2:29 a.m. on the 1200 block of Southwest 8th Avenue in Gainesville, FL, for failing to stop at a stop sign while riding his red scooter. Van Aman cut off the officer, who happened to be at the scene, when he missed the stop sign, forcing the officer to suddenly “hit the breaks” on his car to avoid an accident. Van Aman then “jerked the handle bars on his scooter causing it to swerve and almost lose control.” The officer noticed “a very strong odor of alcoholic beverages” on Van Aman, describing his eyes as “watery, blood shot and extremely dilated” and his face as “flush and pale.” Furthermore, Van Aman was slurring his speech and mumbling his words, which led the officer to conduct a DUI investigation. Van Aman was not forthright about his drinking that evening, refused to submit to a field sobriety test and twice refused breath tests. He remains locked up in Alachua County Jail.

2 » Seattle Mariners catcher Mike Zunino, just 11 games into his MLB career, registered his first walk-off hit on Friday night as he led Seattle to a 5-4 win (10 innings) over the Chicago Cubs. With the bases loaded and the count full, Zunino smacked a one-out single up the middle to send his team to victory. Zunino is currently batting .237 with one home run, two RBI and two walks.
