Canes freshman LB Gabe Terry -- tased during his arrest -- has hearing set for May 20th

Suspended Hurricanes linebacker Gabriel Terry was tased during his arrest early Friday morning, moments after school police officers found the 19-year old freshman sleeping face down on the steps near the rear entrance of his dorm and with a Ziploc bag filled with 26.8 grams of marijuana in the left-side pocket of his shorts.

According to the arrest affidavit from the Coral Gables police department, officers woke Terry up at around 3:48 a.m. and asked him several times to stand up and put his hands behind his back, but he did not comply. Terry then began to argue and pushed an officer away with his body before police shoved him to the ground in an attempt to handcuff him. Terry, who turns 20 on Sept. 21st, was warned he would be tased according to the report, but didn't comply and was able to standup before police used the taser to subdue him. The report said Terry eventually cooperated.

Coral Gables fire rescue was called "to retrieve the [taser] prongs" from Terry's back. Terry was charged with felony possession of cannabis and resisting an officer without violence. He was released Saturday after posting $6,000 bond.

Terry, who has a troubled history as a juvenile and whose father is serving a life sentence in a Central Florida prison for a 2001 murder, has an arraignment hearing scheduled for 9:45 a.m. on May 20th.

Listed as 6-3 and 210 pounds on the spring roster, Terry played in seven games as a freshman. He finished with five tackles and blocked a punt against Virginia Tech. He was suspended for the Virginia and USF games late last season, though UM coach Al Golden never specified what Terry had done wrong.

UM has taken Terry's name off its roster online and suspended him indefinitely. UM's defense has parted ways with three underclassmen -- linebackers Gionni Paul and Eddie Johnson and cornerback Thomas Finnie -- since the end of last season following suspensions and or arrests.

Do men not make mistakes. How could any teammate leave another teammate sleep at the dorm step. Maybe this canes football team has a lot of Rutgers basketball players on the team

The hyprocrites will always be hypocrites, i never worry about those buzards. Apparently the women in here will let there friends drive drunk to. Some real sissies in here, who in here ever got arrested because there friend was smoking, lol. If i'm a headcoach and one of the players got caught out there like that, the whole team is getting punished.

ray lewis made it a point to tell the team always stick together, hang out with each other, etc. etc. These type things wouldn't happen, but coach goldie creating an environment where guys like gabe get isolated, he's 19 people, alot of people haven't been thru what that man has been thru in his short life, but people think everybody is going to conduct themselves the same way, you're an idiot if you think that's going to happen overnight for alot of people.

You never really heard this type stuff happening at UM. Also for those idiots who act like thomas finnie did something new, in the 80's and 90's, actual playing teammates were always getting robbed/robbing the guys who had something they didn't until they came to a point that they realized they didn't have to do that. It's a growing process, everybody don't mature at the same rate but idiots are quick to condemn.

I like seeing when people say they're tired of "racist bullcrap" as if it was invented by the oppressed, lol. The oppressed didn't ask to be in this situation and alot of the oppressed didn't ask to come here to only get a voting rights act just a few short years ago that has to keep being renewed on voted on by a so called civilized society, lol. How can oppressors be tired of something they created, lol. So either the report has a discrepancy or somebody is making up something and the one who can't read, the report clearly said gabe terry "resisted without violence" so if someone pushes a cop, those who know already know what charge they try and hit you with.

I guess the oppressed created the poke & beans, grave yard, scott, victory holmes & larchmont. The same idiots that say they're tired of racism, never even been in the situation to get tired, so what are they tired of, lol.

Who said a teammate left him out there? That's speculation on your part. And yes Men do make mistakes but which part of this is the mistake , The smoking of the weed , The passing out outside , or the possession part. And I would venture to say that he was probably drinking or something else as well because I never heard of weed making so you did not even know where you were passing out. This is not a sign of problems with the team or the coaches this is a problem with 3 or 4 players. The other players were probably doing what they are supposed to be doing and sleeping at that time of night.You have a lot of nerve trying to blame the rest of the team for the ignorance of those other players , talk about enabling. Ray Lewis and the others did it the right way and all the problems around colleges being so talked about and public now no way they don't know better.Go Canes

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The OCD child and pathological liar Gallo posts more BS that anyone that is even slightly familiar with the Canes football program knows to be complete horse sheet. Don't forget, Gallo was a Wall Street nickel and dime hustler who stole money from retirees and other innocent people, so posting lie after lie is a natural act. At least he admitted that his kid is a complete screw-up because of following the ole man's examples.

Here's the name of the only real 2013 casualty or discipline issue:

GALLO'S SCREWED UP KID!!!

GA Cane, stop while you're behind my man. You are real clueless to the era that ray lewis came up in at UM. When you say ray lewis and them did it the right way, unless you mean by looking after each other but the coaches also protected them as well. You looking at ray lewis the nfl product you don't know ray lewis the linebacker that at one point nobody thought he was going to be a starter at UM. Plus the ray lewis at UM wasn't head & shoulders above the other players around him, in fact he wasn't the best player at UM while he was here.

What you're speaking on is the coach goldie way, like i said and many others in the program during those times will attest to, 80% of the team would be kicked off if they were under the goldie era, you must be young or just became a UM fan with the 2000 teams. Cause you just don't realize how much sense you don't make to the people who know alot of what really happened back than.

Also, if you think it's 3 or 4 players, maybe you're high. But if it is 3 or 4 players like you say, that means 81 are doing the right thing, so why aren't we winning more games and dominating since that seems to be the correlation you, coach goldie and alot of other buzzards are trying to make.

What give the police the right to search someone's pocket? Did Gabe give permission for the search? Stupid or not, he still had rights.

////////////////////////////////

That's part of the reason this charge will get reduced, it's just funny to me though how had shannon been the headcoach and this type of stuff happened while he was on deck, that man would've been getting crucified by these same high & mighty posters, but somehow coach goldie is being looked at as a victim, loll, and it's the kids fault. This is why i laugh at these bias clowns, they like to hide behind there inner agenda's.

Whoever it was that tried to make it seem like ray ray armstrong was overrated, you don't know football. HAd that man came out his junior year, he would've been easily drafted, but he stayed 1 year to long and got suspended and than tangled up in the goldie webb and the scheme made em look even weaker and took him all the way off the radar.

Under shannon telemaque and ray ray were viewed as a strong safety tandem and real draftable, under coach goldoe, all that went out the window.

lets not forget that telemaque was the 12th best player in all of California...all of a sudden top guys like ray-ray and vaughn are all "hype" and wash outs....

after the second gets left go, its more than friendly fire......its all al golden.....but he wont own anything...but he cant escape the #116 ranking that is TOTALLY at his feet.

typo....not let go for telemaque but disciplined and underutilized. In 2010 both of them were 1&3 for interceptions and 4&5 in team tackles....

all of a sudden they both drop off the scene when golden arrives....how is that?

Calvin the clueless one is you. For one I was born and raised in Hollywood Fl and have been a Canes and Dolphins fan since I was born , so you're wrong there , second My Baby is 27 years old so I am not young wrong again , third because a player does it the right way does not make him a great player it just makes him a dependable player so wrong again , I sense a theme here moron. Anybody who blames anybody but the player that broke the rules and or the law I don't care who they are is as stupid as you and Gallo . In life if you don't follow the rules their are consequences , and guess what this is true life. Weed is illegal and it was no shock to GT to find that out . Is this why players want to get paid to play? I thought it was because they could not afford to eat half the time , I was not aware that it was so they could buy weed . We wasted scholarships on these selfish ,ungrateful players. Good thing they don't get paid I would hate to have spent money on players who don't even care about the team . And how many more players would be lost with the money to buy more weed or whatever else they want to abuse . Go Canes

Ga Cane, again, you're ery clueles man. Plus the way you view weed is the reason your mind is a lil distorted. Hell, slavery was legal at one point to in this country, so when you talking legal or illegal what are you really talking. It's like trying to ban assault weapons, ice cube said it best "than what they do they go ban the A.K., the schmitt wasn't registered any F'ing way".

So it is with with that smoke, you know how many players in the nfl use and push weed out. Stop being a straight leg and use your brain, True weed comes from the earth, cigarettes have over 4000 chemicals in them but that's suppose to be legal, lol. It's like going outside right now and rollin up some bush you got outside, than everybody start doing it, than all of a sudden, it's illegal, get real.

You got more alcoholics than weed smokers doing way more damage out here. By you not being so young, you'd think you'd know more than what you do, but everybody doesn't get to see much in life which makes sense for all the condemnation that goes on here after a player gets into a situation.

Alot of yall are the back-stabbing type of fake friends. It's always easy to say you're a friend to somebody when it's going good, but when situations come up your real freinds/fans become crystal clear.

Again Calvin you are missing the point,I didn't make the law but that is the law . I don't condemn anybody for smoking weed , I do have a problem with someone who made a commitment to my team and then throws away the scholarship given to him , and separates himself from his teammates so he can get high . I would feel the same way if alcohol and cigarettes were illegal. If you take the scholarship then take the responsibilities that go along with it.You do realize we are talking about a football team and not changing all of mankind right? I am a fan of the team as a whole I will most likely never be a friend of any of these players . Not that I would not like them but I will never know them beyond the team to reference your backstabbing comment. Go Canes


GA Cane, stop while you're behind my man. You are real clueless to the era that ray lewis came up in at UM. When you say ray lewis and them did it the right way, unless you mean by looking after each other but the coaches also protected them as well.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Calvin-

Give it a rest! When Ray played the scrutiny was nothing like it is today. Coaches did protect players because for the most part you had to hold-up a bank, kill a guard in the process and rape a few women on your way out of the bank as you scattered your contact information all about to get the NCAA to even look at you.

Should you doubt the above to be true then have someone read and then explain to you what happened at SMU. Those Cats were caught red handed and even then they continued paying players claiming they couldn't break the contracts they had with them.

When Miami finally got tagged it was due to monumental stupidity and almost begging to be slammed. You know--doing what you and that dumb arse Gallo want the Canes to start doing again.

In today's world, or "era", if a coach did what the coaches of yesteryear did they would be out of a job quicker than you can say...Jim Tressel or Butch Davis!

You and that nitwit twin of yours, Gallo, have taken cluelessness and brainlessness to a level that does deserve credit...much like you give credit to a kid that no matter how many times you tell him not to do so goes outside in sub freezing weather and sticks his tongue to a pole.

------------------------------------------------

now that is genius. what coverage?

What went on in the 80's with college footbal is still going on today. Drugs, alcoholism , dark room money and skipping classes. They just don't have a Nevin on every campus. Some of you so called Alpha males sound ridiculously. Regardlessly if your teammate was right or wrong. You don't leave your fellow teammate outside of the dorm sleep , drunk or high. He's still your teammate and probably a friend out of the uniform. As for Ken Dorsey and Vinnie it's not about racism. High profile college athletes do you really think the campus police is going to turn those guys in . Wouldn't want to be those officers in Miami . Not during the glory days.

In all my years I have never seen any three people as big a stupidasses as Gallober, Calvina and drool cat. Even the three stooges were never this damn stupid.

Calvin i agreed with your first 3 paragraphs then you lost me whenyou began your babble.

Hypocrites?

Ive never been arrested . Ever. I pay taxes. In fact, my taxes probably allowd you to watch soul train reruns in jail mofo.

Ok so his teammat shluld have been there. What if he shunned them? Do you kow? Were you there?

highsmith seems like a great young man and hard worker. what did he ever do to you, gallo? i am sure he would welcome the challenge, but putting him on the island with his speed in that d is kinda mean. if we played navy every game it may work or if you're expecting teams to only run like a dbl tight full house against us this year.

Gallo......Armsrtrong would have already graduated in this model you jacka$ss......

FIRST OF ALL WHY IS IT A LAW TO GO TO SLEEP OUTSIDE WHERE YOU LIVE IS SLEEPING A VIOLENT ACT THESE PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES POLICE NEED TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY WHY WAS HE SEARCHED WHY SO SOME ASS COULD SAY LOOK I JUST MADE A BUST WHAT A GOOD COP AM I GREAT POLICE WORK THAT IS HOW ABOUT A FRIENDLY SIR YOU NEED TO GET UP TO YOUR DORM BEFORE YOU END UP IN TROUBLE NO SEARCH NO HASSLE JUST SOME HELP TO A PERSON THAT OBVIOUSLY NEEDED SOME HELP NOT TO COMPLICATE HIS LIFE WITH AN UNNEEDED POLICE ACTION AGAIN PRAYING ON INOCENT PEOPLE THAT SMOKE POT GO FIND REAL CRIMINALS THE KIND THAT SET OFF BOMBS DURING EVENTS LIKE BTHE BOSTON MARATHON YHATS REAL POLICE WORK THATS PROTECTING INNOCENT PEOPLE NOT HURTING YOUNG PEOPLE THAT MAKE STUPID MISTAKES MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH FIND REAL CRIMINALS HOW ABOUT THAT NOT PRAY UPON OUR YOUTH THAT SMOKE AHARMLESS SUBSTANCE WONT BE LONG BEFORE ITS LEGALEIN THIS STATE ALSO THEN WE CAN REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF POLICE BECAUSE THEY WONT BE NEEDED TOO BUST INNOCENT KIDS DOING NOTHING WRONG BUT FALLING ASLEEP IN FRONT OF THEIR HOME HOW SHAMEFUL IS THATGO ARREST PEOPLE THAT HURT OTHER PEOPLE ITS ABOUT TIME THIS NATION STOOD UP TO THE OVER POLICED TRYING TO BUST YOUNG MEN BLOWING OFF STEAM AGAIN GET REAL CRIMINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!R

Oh yeah it's the police's fault! OMG some of you no accountability people. This kid screwed up & ruined his life & it's nobodys fault but his. He had more opportunity than virtually all of the worlds population...and blew it by taking it for granted. Coach needs to clean up his program because it's heading the wrong direction. I'm tired of these thugs ruining it for the rest of us.

He isn't even man enough to make it home after a night of partying....get rid of him.

Ga Cane
You are correct, when you graduate from high school and are 18 years old you are supposed to be a grownup, not a child who needs his hand held. Why some of these bozos on this blog don't get it is beyond me, all they want to do is say it's racial, or give the kid a break, but they are not kids, no matter what color they are. Skin color makes no difference, if you cut them they still bleed red, and if you are in college you have certain responsibilities and one of them is to act like a responsible grownup. Going out and getting high, and then being stupid enough to carry the drug on your person and get caught, that is not being responsible, it's being selfish and stupid. As I said before, stupid is as stupid does. Who knows, maybe Coach Golden will give him another chance, if he does, great, if he doesn't, then it is a hard lesson learned. Go Canes

How can he be resisting if he was tased in the back?
GO IRISH!

Thanks Cane11. I don't want to sound like I don't feel bad for him , but I don't like the fact that some of these people are trying to put the blame on someone else . I have no qualms with weed but when you accept a $200,000.00 scholarship I think you have a responsibility to that school , to your team , and more importantly to yourself .As far as the other guys they made their choice about what was most important to them and it was not the Canes. Go Canes

Not only did Calvina, and Gallows Galoba, and Mousetrap blame the pot for being there, they blame the team for not helping . The Coaches, and the situation.
Clueless.

How ridiculous can you get.

When you ( as a Player) are minding your business, looking out for your team, thinking of winning by doing the right things, and others claim guilt by Association.

Who is guilty?.
The team
The Coaches
His friends
The bag
The stairwell
The Campus Cops
The tazer
Wrong place
Wrong time

Get real people.
THINK.

When someone uses a gun you don't blame the gun, you blame the person behind the trigger. Everyone is accountable, and answers with their actions to their own brain.

He imploded.

Good luck in the future Gabe.
Go 'Canes

They self righteous bozo's are trying to come out in full force again i see. These idiots would be the same ones trying to prosecute an 18 year old for having sex with a 15/16 year old(even though they're both in the same highschool, the 18 year old is hopefully a senior and 15/16 is probably a sophmore) because they're like a horse with blinders and can't see, and can only think & do what somebody else wants them to think & do.

Here's something for all those wanna wise owls, it's something called "the spirit of the law" this was put into place but while their are laws on the books, common sense should not be left out to as well. Than for an idiot to say that man is ruining it for the rest of us" he's not ruining nothing for me, quit being selfish and thinking about yourself, at 19, that man is still in youth mode. He'll be alright, all he has to do is go the juco route and than next year he'll be right back where he started, he's to gifted.

Like i said before, if goldie is so hell bent on weed, he needs to start showing up at recruits houses with piss cups instead of wasting all this money recruiting players he later on kicks off the team anyway. Don't step up to the podium the after receiving all the signed L.O.I.'s and began to start telling us how great these kids are and how much character they have an how much they all fitted "our core values" than next thing we know, the goldie axe is coming out, GTFOH with.

If you gone be the headcaoch at UM, deal with the right way and help these kids get to that level. This is why coach goldie keeps trying to defend himself by saying when he was at temple, he lived in the inner city and this and that, well, so far, it's not working here, time to change what you doing or you'll get changed.


Unless Al Golden provided the weed, I don't see how this is his fault. Stop smoking weed and hit the weight room....there won't be any problems.

Calvin, we're not using youth as an excuse anymore.

If Golden doesn't punish him then who will?

39+ high risk casualties and/or disciplinary problems in the Golden years. All the above slurs, insults, and demeaning comments, perhaps can be justified. However, all these young men played football on some great levels that will go unappreciated. Now that they have shown an inability to adjust to civil and cultural mores, what happens now? We cut them loose to nothing and expect miracles or continued failure. For all they have to offer in entertainment value, they deserve better mentoring. Their backgrounds are all known before they arrive, especially players like Terry. Mentoring, counseling, & guidance, could all be better. Won't save everyone but at least worth the effort.
