The University of Florida on Wednesday released a heavily redacted initial incident report on the sexual battery investigation involving freshman quarterback Treon Harris, who is also serving an “interim suspension” from the school, according to ESPN.com.

The only information not hidden was the offense description (“sexual battery”); names of the reporting officer (Jessica Zarate), investigator (Justin Faroni) and case screening supervisor (Henry Spurlin); location of the incident (Springs Residential Complex); and the range of time between when the incident was reported, an officer arrived on the scene (seven minutes) and the initial statements were completed (four hours, 11 minutes).
The University Police Department, with an assist from the Gainesville Police Department, plans to interview Harris and complete a full analysis of forensic evidence before releasing the complete report, which will likely only have the victim’s name and other sensitive details redacted.
Harris is not only facing potential legal charges, he is simultaneously serving an “interim suspension” from the school and an indefinite suspension from the football program.
