Let’s face it, Florida Basketball players have an collective IQ of about 12. How often do you hear about the stupid stuff they do? All the time. Congratulations Erving Walker, you are the Dumbass of the Week!
Walker’s decision to steal a $3 taco from a Gainesville street vendor cost him $301, the amount he was ordered to pay as punishment after he pleaded no contest Thursday morning to misdemeanor petit theft charges in Alachua County Court. Judge Walter M. Green withheld adjudication and ordered Walker to pay the fine by Sept. 27. The state dropped an additional misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest without violence as part of the agreement. “It was just a silly mistake,” Walker said after his court appearance. “I apologize to everybody. I’m embarrassed about it. That’s not me. I’m just trying to put it behind me and move on.” Walker was charged with petit theft and resisting an officer without violence at 1 a.m. ET March 30 after Gainesville Police Department officers apprehended him following a foot chase that also involved several police cars.
