Ex-Gators captain Tony Joiner charged with murder

A second member of the Florida Gators’ 2007 team has been charged with murder.

Former UF safety and team captain Tony Joiner faces a second-degree murder charge from the 2016 death of his wife, Heyzel Obando, according to the Fort Myers News-Press. The paper reported that Joiner was previously arrested twice on complaints that he beat Obando.

The 33-year-old Joiner was booked in the Polk County jail on Saturday, according to jail records.

Joiner appeared in 47 games with 27 starts for UF from 2004-07. He led UF defensive backs with 59 tackles during the 2006 national championship run, and he recorded a tackle and pass breakup in the win over Ohio State in the BCS title game.

He was the captain of the ’07 team that also featured Aaron Hernandez, who became a star tight end who was convicted of murder in 2015. He killed himself in jail two years later.

Joiner’s arrest is the latest off-field mark on Urban Meyer’s tenure in Gainesville. His time at UF included two national championships but more than two dozen arrests and now a second former player charged with murder.

his wife, Heyzel Obando,

She must have been related to President Obongo !

"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. "

The best thing about old age is that it doesn't last forever.

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out... without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.” ~ H. L. Mencken
