Florida State Linebacker Nigel Carr has been arrested.
BURGL OF STRUCTURE CONVEYANCE UNARMED WO PERS INSIDE
DAMAGE PROP-CRIM MISCH 200 DOLLARS AND UNDER
FRAUD-IMPERSON USE/POSS ID OF ANOTHER PERSON WO CONSENT
THEFT OF CREDIT CARD
The two burglary charges and the ID charge are 3rd degree felonies (lowest level felonies). The other two charges are misdemeanors. Every report you read will say that he faces up to 5 years in prison to make it seem very severe. Carr was supposed to start this year at OLB for the Seminoles. We will continue to monitor the progress of this case in the future.
We have been told that with no record and these charges there is a very likely chance that he is able to plea to lower charges. We don't know exactly how Jimbo Fisher will handle situations such as this. Obviously we have said that double standards apply, and Carr was slated to start this year and is considered a very talented player.
UPDATE: Ira Schoffel says via his twitter that Jimbo Fisher has confirmed to him a suspension will be made in this case because of the felony nature.
