Florida's Dunlap arrested on DUI charge

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Just days before it's scheduled to play the University of Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2009 SEC Championship game, Florida is dealing with a player who's been arrested.

Defensive end Carlos Dunlap is charged with driving under the influence, just days before for the top-ranked Gators play their biggest game of the season.

Dunlap, a junior from North Charleston, S.C., is awaiting an initial appearance at the Alachua County Jail. He was arrested at 3:25 a.m. Tuesday.

According to police, an officer was dispatched to check out reports of a reckless driver near campus.

When the officer spotted a car matching the description of the reports, he found Dunlap asleep at the wheel.

The officer woke up Dunlap, who failed a field sobriety test, refused a breath test and was booked.

Dunlap was the defensive MVP of last season's Bowl Championship Series national title game. 

There's been no reaction from the University as of noon.
