GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Will Muschamp has suspended offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker following his arrest for allegedly stealing a scooter.

Muschamp made the announcement Friday, two days after Dunker was charged with a third-degree felony.

Muschamp says he suspended Dunker, a redshirt freshman expected to compete for a starting job this spring, from all team activities until "we get more information." Dunker's attorney says his client paid $600 for the scooter and had no idea it had been reported stolen.

Three other players are done at Florida. Muschamp parted ways with junior defensive end Kendric Johnson and junior receiver Stephen Alli. Both are scheduled to graduate this spring and will no longer be on scholarship. And offensive lineman Tommy Jordan is applying for medical exemption because of a shoulder injury.
