GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida signee Justin Watkins is in trouble with the law again after an incident earlier this spring that saw him arrested in Marion County.

Watkins was booked into the Alachua County Jail on Tuesday and remains in custody, facing four charges including two third-degree felonies. Alachua County inmate logs list charges of false imprisonment/kidnapping and domestic battery by strangulation as the two third-degree felony charges against the recent Florida enrollee, as well as two first-degree misdemeanor battery charges.

"Justin Watkins has been suspended immediately from all activities," coach Dan Mullen said through a UF spokesman.

WCJB (TV20) in Gainesville obtained a copy of the arrest report, which indicates that Watkins held a woman down on a bed and punched, slapped and choked her on July 20. Watkins then blocked the exit to his dorm room before the woman sprayed him with mace to escape. 

The University of Florida Police Department made the arrest. Bond has not yet been set, according to Alachua County court records.

Watkins previously ran afoul of the law in May when he was arrested for allegedly breaking a female's phone and kicking her car. He reportedly followed her to a gas station following an argument and threw her phone to the pavement, shattering the screen.

A police report indicated that Watkins then followed the woman to Vanguard High School and kicked her car repeatedly. Because he was not a student at Vanguard, he was charged with trespassing school grounds.

Watkins was a four-star prospect in the 2018 recruiting class and one of Florida's top-rated signees. He enrolled for the Summer B semester at the end of June.

The East Ridge product out of Clermont, Fla., played both offense and defense in high school. He was selected to play in the Under Armour All-America Game as a senior after starring at both receiver and cornerback at East Ridge.

He was expected to contribute at cornerback for the Gators, recently appearing in a photo with the defensive backs at a team picture day. Rated as the nation's No. 89 overall prospect and a terrific athlete, Watkins was expected to contribute on special teams, as well, possibly even in the return game.

Listed at 5 foot 11, 172 pounds, he could have helped shore up the depth at the cornerback position for the Gators after a couple departures since the 2017 season.

Though the Gators return both starters in Marco Wilson and CJ Henderson, the depth at the position is relatively light. Fellow freshman Trey Dean enrolled in the spring semester and appeared well on his way toward making early contributions, and Watkins was expected to further bolster the depth at the position.

With two incidents in just three months now, whether Watkins will have a future at Florida remains unclear.

Swamp247 has reached out to UFPD for comment on the arrest but was not immediately able to reach a public information officer. We will update this story when we have more information on the alleged incident.
