UF Football Player Chris Rainey Arrested
Starting Gator football receiver Chris Rainey was arrested early Tuesday after threatening to kill his on-and-off again girlfriend of three years. Police say that he showed up to her house after she ignored his phone calls. He continued calling and texting her to come out and told her "I'm here and I will bust out the window." The victim went out and spoke with Rainey for about ten minutes until he became irate and she made him leave.
After Rainey left the victim's home, he texted her "don't go to sleep" and "time to die." Fearing for her life, the victim's sister called 9-1-1 and police arrested Rainey at 3 am.
In court today, the Victim said she did not want to press charges and that she was not afraid of Rainey. An Assistant coach for the Gators appeared in court on Rainey's behalf to convince the judge he would control his behavior. The judge released Rainey on his own recognizance meaning he will not have to post bail. He was given a curfew from 10pm to 7 am except for school and work purposes.
