Ex-Gators CB/Police Informant Caught with Bath Salts
Former Florida Gators CB turned police informant Loucheiz Purifoy was busted in a car last month with weed and bath salts according to GatorSports.com:
Purifoy was in the driver’s seat of the car, which was a rental Buick from Tennessee, and was holding a marijuana joint, the warrant states. Purifoy was searched and two baggies that were later tested to contain a synthetic drug known as bath salts were found in Purifoy’s pocket, according to the warrant.
If it’s possible, that may not be the craziest part of this story because we have a twist. Purifoy was not put in jail because he actually agreed to be an informant for the police in the drug investigation. The problem is, he didn’t actually help and they issued a warrant for his arrest. Then something strange happened and the arrest warrant just basically went away which is now under investigation:
The quashing of an arrest warrant for former University of Florida football player Loucheiz Purifoy, who was allegedly caught in March by the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office with marijuana and synthetic drugs known as bath salts, will be the subject of a police internal affairs investigation.
“I was made aware this morning of a Motion to Quash an Arrest Warrant in a case originated by an (ASO) deputy on March 19, 2014. Based on probable cause developed by the deputy, an arrest warrant was issued for Loucheiz Purifoy for April 4, 2014, after he failed to fulfill his end of the bargain made with GACDTF,” Darnell wrote. “The action to quash the warrant is highly unusual and, as a result, I have numerous questions as to the propriety of how this occurred.”
As of right now, Purifoy looks like he won’t be charged but this investigation into whether or not the warrant was ended on purpose. We will keep an eye on this situation and keep you updated.
