GAINESVILLE -- Well, just when you thought it was going to be a relatively quiet summer for the Gators, the team's projected starting center, Maurkice Pouncey, was issued a traffic citation for possession of an open container in a motor vehicle. What, kid can't crack a beer?
Gator Clause pulled the report from the Alachua County public records this afternoon. Maurkice Pouncey was issued the citation on Sunday, July 20 at 9 p.m. near 3500 NW 8th Ave. Just four days before Maurkice's 19th birthday. What a killjoy, right?
According to the traffic citation, Maurkice wasn't driving the 2006 silver Chevy registered to his stepfather, Rob Webster. Maurkice was riding shotgun when his wheelman was pulled over for "no tag light," according to the report.
No clue who the driver was but the type of beer that was opened in the car was named in the report. Natural Lite, of course. What else would underage college kids be drinking on a Sunday night in July other than Natty Lite? (I was and still am a champagne man. It's always a good time for a High Life.) Good to know Maurkice is just like the rest of us when we were in college. Poor and stupid.
Maurkice's fine? $94, according to the helpful folks at the Alachua County courthouse. .
