Florida backup quarterback Cameron newton was arrested Friday for stealing a laptop.
He wasn't caught when he stole it, but rather when the school traced the laptop back to him after he logged into the UF network from the laptop. Honestly, who is stupid enough to do that? Not that stealing a $1,700 laptop is a smart move to begin with, but c'mon.
Police initially entered Newton's dorm to investigate. They checked the serial number on the laptop, and left the dorm to verify it. After it was confirmed that it matched that of the stolen laptop, they re-entered Newton's dorm and: voila, the laptop was gone.
They found out that Newton had thrown the laptop out of the window of his dorm, and it was later found behind the dumpster of the dorm.
Maybe Newton should've thrown the laptop out before the police came in and read him his Miranda rights. But we guess that sitting on the bench for the past two seasons has really affected his throwing arm.
Regardless, Gator fans shouldn't care about Newton's arm anymore. Coach Urban Meyer should kick Newton off the team, in much the same manner that cornerback Jacques Rickerson was booted for felony assault by strangulation a few weeks back.
Entering his career at UF, Newton showed promise as Tim Tebow's backup in garbage time. He became a fan favorite after his performance at the end of the game against Tennessee in 2007:
But those days should be forgotten by Gator fans. Newton must be kicked off the team for this, it's inexcusable.
