Two SEC arrests emphasize dangers, illegality of drinking and motor vehicles

As a long holiday weekend approaches, let this post serve as a reminder that drinking and driving any sort of vehicle under the influence is dangerous and also illegal.

First we have Grant Van Aman, a walk-on punter at Florida who was arrested early Saturday morning for DUI after running a stop sign. On his scooter. This is not the first scooter-related crime in Gainesville this year, as offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker was arrested for stealing one in January.

We also have another SEC special teamer, Georgia starting place kicker Marshall Morgan. Morgan was arrested Saturday on Lake Sinclair by Georgia Department of National Resources rangers for boating under the influence. A DNR sergeant in a helicopter saw Morgan's boat towing two inner tubes without a spotter - a violation of Georgia boating regulations - and informed officers in the water who made the arrest. Rangers said Morgan was cooperative throughout.

Be safe and smart this weekend, people.
