Florida’s already tough week with law enforcement got a little worse on Monday evening when police were called to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to break up a fight between quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg and defensive lineman Gerald Willis.
University police were called to the outside of the stadium around 7 p.m. after receiving reports of the fight. By the time the police arrived, only one player was still there. Neither player pressed charges and no arrests were made.
Per UFPD report, #Gators Skyler Mornhinweg told police he confronted Gerald Willis over a pair of missing cleats, suffered lip lacerations.

Mornhinweg, who told police members of the Florida training staff had found his cleats in Willis' locker, was taken to the emergency room for his injuries.
"It was a misunderstanding between two teammates," UF spokesman Steve McClain said. "Coach [Will] Muschamp has not announced any discipline decisions at this time."
Florida announced earlier Monday that freshman quarterback Treon Harris, who was the primary backup and contending for the starting role, was indefinitely suspended from the team pending an investigation for sexual battery. No arrest has been made.
Mornhinweg is currently the backup quarterback to Jeff Driskel for Saturday’s game against LSU while Will Grier continues to deal with back spasms.
