Murphy Arrested In Florida On Multiple Misdemeanors

According to a report from the Gainesville Sun on Sunday afternoon, Raiders WR Louis Murphy, a former University of Florida star, was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with three misdemeanors — possession of a drug without a valid prescription, failure to obey a police officer and resisting arrest without violence.

The Gainesville police report said that an officer spotted Murphy’s Cadillac Escalade with the stereo playing loudly. Murphy didn’t initially pull over, instead driving to a city parking lot, where he and his passengers got out of the SUV and walked away. Murphy refused to present identification, demanded to know why he had been stopped then refused to put his hands behind his back before three officers finally were able to take the 6-2, 200-pound Murphy into custody.

Officers found a “non-labeled prescription bottle containing 11 individual pills later identified as Viagra” in Murphy’s car, according to the police report.
