Harris police report released

The University of Florida released the police report on Wednesday afternoon.

Florida quarterback Treon Harris spoke with University of Florida police at 6:36 a.m. on October 6, the morning that the alleged sexual battery was reported. Harris told police that he had consensual sex with the accuser. He also told police that he had previously hung out and had classes with the woman accusing him of sexual battery.

The alleged incident occurred early in the morning on October 5, hours after the Florida football team returned from a 10-9 win over Tennessee in Knoxville. Harris keyed a fourth-quarter comeback, leading the Gators on two scoring drives to secure the program’s 10th straight win over the Volunteers.

The university released 175 pages on Wednesday that were related to the investigation.

The interview with Harris accounted for 63 pages of it. The Florida quarterback said multiple times that he couldn’t believe he was being questioned about the alleged incident. Harris told police that he didn’t hear from the accuser throughout the day Sunday after the alleged incident and was surprised that she made the accusation.

The alleged victim’s name was redacted throughout the report. She said that Harris forced his way on top of her in his dorm room after she stated that she did not want to have sex with him. Harris told police that she didn’t say anything.

Harris said that he watched the Auburn-LSU game with the accuser when the team returned to Gainesville. They went separate ways but met up later at a Gainesville club.

Multiple Florida football players were interviewed as witnesses. Their reports say a group, including Harris and the accuser, decided to get something to eat after leaving the club. They made stops at Waffle House and a Kangaroo gas station, and Harris and the accuser were seen “either holding hands or with their arms around each other” while walking into the gas station earlier in the night.

The accuser withdrew the complaint on October 10.

On Wednesday, Florida coach Will Muschamp named Harris the starting quarterback for the game against Georgia on November 1.
