Former Florida Gators running back Adarius Lemons was arrested Wednesday and put into the Alachua County Jail for reportedly choking and beating up his longtime girlfriend in Gainesville according to court documents

Former UF tailback Adarius Lemons, who quit the team following the September 8 loss to Kentucky, is in Alachua County Jail following his arrest Wednesday.

The 21-year old from Clearwater was suspended for the season opener against Charleston Southern, and a week later announced his plans to transfer after Florida's loss to Kentucky.

Lemons is being held on a felony charge for battery by strangulation, as well as two first-degree misdemeanors for battery and criminal mischief and property damage.

According to a sworn complaint filed to the Gainesville Police Department, on September 21, Adarius Lemons, 21, became upset about a social media message on his girlfriend's phone and then took it and "smashed it into pieces".

The Justice Department issued statements aimed at denying the reports, including one that said the wiretap remark was meant sarcastically.

Lemons allegedly struck and strangled his longtime girlfriend during an argument last Friday, leaving her bleeding from her lip and with various scrapes, Alachua County Court records show.

According to an affidavit, Lemons rammed his longtime girlfriend into three walls September 21 and grabbed her neck, restricting her breathing. McLeod couldn't breathe, and Lemons eventually released her, according to the complaint. Both witnesses said they heard the commotion and saw Lemons choke her to the point where she "was on her tippy toes", the documents say.

Lemons, who was No. 149 in the ESPN 300 when he committed in 2016, had 19 carries for 136 yards as a freshman.

Lemons left the Gators immediately after the Kentucky game, saying that he wanted to "find a school I can help to my best ability and actually use my talent".
