TALLAHASSEE (AP) – Florida State cornerback and return specialist Greg Reidwas arrested Monday on charges of resisting arrest and perjury, accusations his attorney said were bogus.
Reid, who led the nation in punt returns in 2009 as a freshman, was arrested at 2:30 a.m. by Tallahassee police and booked at the Leon County Jail, where he bonded out eight hours later.
The police report said Reid, 21, was trying to protect a friend from his hometown of Valdosta, Ga. The friend, Rontrel Frazier, was being pursued on accusations of forcefully resisting arrest after being stopped earlier by police while riding a scooter owned by the Seminoles defensive back. During questioning, Reid signed a sworn written statement that was false, police said, despite being told beforehand that he would be guilty of perjury if he failed to answer truthfully.
