USF LB Barrington in jail on license issues again

For the second time in a year, USF linebacker Sam Barrington is in jail because of problems stemming from a charge of driving with a suspended license.

Barrington, a 19-year-old sophomore from Jacksonville expected to be the team's starting middle linebacker this fall, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Tampa on an outstanding warrant related to a June citation for driving with license cancelled, suspended or revoked with knowledge. Barrington was booked into county jail at 4:13 p.m. and remained there as of 8 p.m., held on $250 bond.

Barrington ran into nearly identical trouble exactly one year ago today, turning himself in on an outstanding warrant relating to a June 2009 arrest for driving with license suspended with knowledge, a misdemeanor. Wednesday was the sixth time he has been stopped in Hillsborough County for a traffic citation in 13 months, with three citations resolved with fines paid and another dismissed. His arrest comes one week before USF's football players report for preseason training camp; last year's came nine days before the start of camp and did not result in any suspension from games.

USF's football players have had trouble with driver's license issues -- running back Mike Ford was arrested on that charge in December, and former cornerback Jerome Murphy was arrested Saturday near campus for driving without a valid license.

USF administrators were aware of Barrington's arrest Wednesday night, and a statement was forthcoming.

Jesus are you kidding me. I dont understand how hard it is to get a license and keep it from getting suspended. And what moron gets pulled over 6 times in a year. Amazing.

The kid is a great talent, but jeez learn to follow traffic laws.

Good god, this is getting crazy.

Are you serious??? Stay on campus and walk or get a ride with a friend.... you're the starting middle linebacker for a BCS level football team.... I think you probably know someone that can give you a lift to the store if you need to get there...

It's one thing when it's a mistake... 6 times??? Really?

Obviously the guy should start walking. He is too irresponsible to be operating a motor vehicle.

I had 13 speeding tickets between the ages of 19-26 (license suspended once during that period). It happens... I'm a good driver... just had places to get to. Licensing laws need to be rewritten.

  Licensing laws need to be rewritten.

Yes they do, drive without one or while it's suspended and you should get time in the pokey!

This sucks; I hope Holtz comes down on Barrington and this whole license crap in general, but we NEED Sam on the field (especially for 9/11).  This whole issue is just effing insane!  >:(

When training camp opens, let's check each license and make sure we're good. I don't get it. ???

Maybe Voodoo 5 blog had a good idea to have the state come in and check everyone's DL's. No cops, no arrests for driving without it, just check and get up to date for the whole team. Apparently we also need a Driver's Ed class for him to get pulled over 6 times in about a year.

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
