Gainesville Police spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg says police saw UF cornerback Janoris Jenkins punch another man in the head shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday. When Jenkins continued fighting, they shot him with a Taser, and he tried to run away.
He was arrested on charges of resisting arrest without violence and posted bail later Saturday.
Kameg says Jenkins told police the fight started because he thought someone was going to steal the gold chain around his neck.
Jenkins' attorney Huntley Johnson says he believes his client acted in self-defense and prosecution will be deferred or charges dismissed.
