Gators' Eddy Pineiro facing charges for damaging scooters

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida kicker Eddy Pineiro is facing misdemeanor charges that he damaged two scooters on campus.

The University of Florida Police Department filed its report Nov. 7 with the State Attorney's Office. According to the police report, which alleges misdemeanor charges of property damage,  multiple witnesses saw Pineiro "pushing over scooters that were next to his" in an on-campus parking lot on Nov. 7. Pineiro damaged two scooters by "kicking them and then ripping off the side mirrors" before driving away.

The total damage to the scooters is estimated at $800.

Officers said they made contact with Pineiro, who acknowledged pushing over the scooters.

The State Attorney's Office will conduct its own investigation.
