Here's a disturbing story from the murky swamps of Gainesville. Jamar Hornsby, a 21-year-old safety for the Florida Gators, has turned himself in to authorities after illegal use of a credit card. Unlike most other slimy college athletes guilty of credit card fraud, Hornsby's single-handedly guaranteed a first ballot nomination in the Scumbag Hall of Fame with his transgression. Turns out the credit card he was using was Ashley Slonina's a former U of F student killed in a motorcycle accident last year.

According to the AP, "It's not immediately clear how he got Ashley Slonina's credit card. Slonina, also a University of Florida student, died in a motorcycle accident in 2007 along with another football player, redshirt freshman Michael Guilford."


Yeah, Hornsby appears to be kind of a heartless dick. Enjoy playing safety at junior college next year. At least he'd actually get a chance to start there.
