Daniel McMillian

Former Florida Gators linebacker Daniel McMillian was arrested late Thursday night and remains in the Alachua County Jail on Friday morning on charges of sexual assault (a first-degree felony) and false imprisonment (a third-degree felony).

According to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report, McMillian invited the alleged victim to his apartment around 3:40 p.m. on Thursday. Once she entered the residence, McMillian, 23, reportedly locked the door, blocked it and then exposed himself to her.

The victim asked to leave but, according to the report, McMillan approached her and grabbed her. The report states she kicked McMillian, unlocked the door and ran to safety.

The victim sustained a small scratch on her arm while attempting to escape and "was visibly shaking and hysterically crying" afterward when talking with officers, according to the report.

McMillian remains in the Alachua County Jail as of press time in lieu of a $40,000 bond.

McMillian, a Jacksonville native, played in 41 games at Florida, mostly as a reserve linebacker and on special teams. He recorded 65 career tackles in his four years.
