Deiondre Porter has been suspended indefinitely on Wednesday, after he was arrested for supposedly firing a gun in the direction of his pregnant girlfriend.

The player is accused of four felony charges, one count of aggravated battery (second-degree felony), one count of firing a weapon into a vehicle or building (third-degree felony) and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill (third-degree felony) including domestic violence enhancements. He is held in the Alachua County Jail on a $160,000 bond.

It all happened at 2:15 a.m. Sept. 29, only three days after the eighth-ranked Gators beat rival Tennessee in Gainesville. Porter didn’t played for the past two weeks.

His girlfriend came forward Monday to report the incident, almost two weeks after. According to Officer Ben Tobias, a police spokesman “She said she was scared. She was dealing with a well-known UF football player and she was honestly terrified to come to the police and report it.”

Porter’s suspension was announced on twitter by the Gators, and coach Jim McElwain talked about it on the Southeastern Conference coaches call. According to him “He’s no longer with the football team,” and “He’s suspended indefinitely for obviously a choice. It’s his choice not to be with us. I’m sure you’ll read about it soon enough. It’s one of those things that we don’t obviously condone. Like I said, it was his choice.”

The player was arrested just two days after Florida quarterback Will Grier was suspended for one year after he violated the NCAA’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. This means the Gators are playing No. 6 LSU without two of his main players.

The player accused his girlfriend of being romantically involved with a teammate, and pointed a gun at her head and demanded her to tell him the truth, he was aware of the 10 weeks pregnancy.

The woman tried unsuccessfully to reach the teammate, and after this they fell asleep in separate rooms, according to the report.

A couple of hours later, Porter started to argue about the same subject, and became infuriated and fired the gun in her direction, the bullet lodged in the wall where she was leaning, according to the report.

Porter has played in four games this season, and registered two tackles.
