GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A former First Coast High School football player who went on to become a member of the University of Florida football team was arrested Thursday and charged with false inprisonment and attempted sexual battery.
Daniel McMillian was booked at the Alachua County Jail on Thursday night. Bond was set at $40,000.
McMillian worked out for NFL scouts at the school’s pro day last week. He played sparingly in four years at Florida.
Police say the alleged victim is an employee of a company of which McMillian was a customer. She went to McMillian’s apartment for “legitimate professional reasons,” where McMillian reportedly locked her in his room, exposed his genitals and grabbed her.
The victim was “physically shaking and hysterically crying” while speaking with police after kicking McMillian in the genitals and fleeing the apartment.
Prior to playing for the Gators, McMillian was a local standout with the Buccaneers. McMillian was the Times-Union’s defensive player of the year — as well as a Super 11 and Super 24 selection — in 2012 and enrolled early at Florida.
As a senior last season, McMillian played in 12 games for the Gators and totaled a career-high 29 tackles and had one interception.
