UF lineman Carl Johnson arrested

GAINESVILLE -- Florida offensive lineman Carl Johnson was arrested on Monday for allegedly violating the terms of a temporary restraining order, according to the Alachua County jail record. The charge is listed as a first-degree misdemeanor.

Johnson was booked into the Alachua County jail at 1:21 p.m. on Monday by the University Police Department after allegedly following a woman off a bus. Johnson had been ordered to stay away from the woman. Johnson was issued a restraining order last week.

Johnson, a sophomore, worked his way up the depth chart to first-string guard last season and started the Gators' final nine games of the season. He is expected to compete for a starting position this spring.

University Athletic Association spokesman Steve McClain said in a statement on Monday night that the university is aware of the report and gathering details about the incident. Florida coach Urban Meyer is out of the country, according to McClain.
