USF Recruit Arrested After Pulling Gun on Cop (Mugshot)
Probably not the smartest move by Marquise Bryant.
The question begs was there something that made him feel like his life was in danger? I am not condoning pulling your gun on an officer, but we know in Florida sometimes they shot first and ask questions later.
The suspect — 18-year-old Marquise Bryant — was confronted by an officer in Fort Myers, FL for loitering around 2:30 AM.
During the incident, the cop says Bryant reached for his right front pocket — even after the cop told him to put his hands up.
The cop says Bryant continued to go for the pocket … and a fight broke out between the two — with Bryant allegedly pulling out a gun at one point.
But the officer was able to click a button that released his police dog Bala from the cop car — and Bala bit Bryant on his right thigh.
Luckily no one was shot and Bryant has been charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon.
Bryant a running back had committed to University of South Florida.
