GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Prosecutors have filed two charges against suspended Florida player Ronnie Wilson in an early April shooting incident.
Wilson, 19, allegedly fired a semiautomatic weapon into the air after being chased following a nightclub incident. He was charged with battery and discharging a firearm in public. Arraignment was set for July 3.
The alleged victim claimed Wilson spat on him and slapped him in the face at a nightclub. Wilson told police he did spit on the victim but denied hitting him. Wilson allegedly left the club, pulled a rifle from his trunk and fired a shot in the air.
Florida coach Urban Meyer called the incident a ``major concern'' following the arrest in April, and suspended Wilson indefinitely from team activities. Meyer declined comment on the charges through sports information director Steve McClain.
``Nothing has changed in his status,'' McClain said.
Wilson was a member of the Gators national title team as a redshirt freshman offensive lineman.
