Florida State Receiver UPDATE: Violation of Probation

BACK IN THE NEWS, ITS PRESTON PARKER

After his recent DUI arrest, Preston Parker, receiver at Florida State University, has been dismissed “due to his latest violation of team policy.” Bobby Bowden is sad to let the guy go, but he had to do what he had to do.

Recapping what his last DUI arrest entailed… Parker was found passed out in an idle-running Dodge Charger at a McDonald’s in the early hours of the weekend. He was arrested for DUI, yet tested under the legal limit for alcohol via breath test. Marijuana was found actively in a urine sample immediately after the arrest.

Parker faces new problems now as a Violation of Probation will come into play in reaction to a previous charge of marijuana possession and an illegally carried firearm charge out of Palm Beach Gardens. He was placed on a plea deal of 12 month probation stemming from that marijuana possession charge. According to Florida Department of Corrections records, May 18 was the end date for that probation, so he will likely face a misdemeanor probation violation.

VOP (Violation of Probation) is something you must deal with immediately; the sooner the better.
