The female student who accused Florida Gators freshman quarterback Treon Harris of sexual battery on Monday has withdrawn her complaint four days later, and the player has subsequently had his school suspension lifted.
“The University of Florida has informed the University Athletic Association that the sexual battery complaint has been withdrawn, and the university is not proceeding with any action,” UF spokesperson Janine Sikes said in a statement released to OnlyGators.com late Friday afternoon.
The University of Florida provided the following statement to OnlyGators.com earlier in the afternoon, announcing the Harris’s accuser had rescinded her sexual battery claim:
The student who accused Treon Harris of sexual battery has withdrawn her criminal complaint. This means she is not pursuing criminal charges against him at this time but maintains the right to do so in the future.
The police report will be released when it is available.
The UAA will have more information on his football status later in the day.
The university always will take swift and decisive action when we have concerns about the safety of our students.
The University Athletic Association has yet to announce a decision on Harris’s playing status with the Gators, but a decision will likely come before the day is out.
