As much as I’m not a fan of signing day and the coverage of it, it’s still a huge day for tons of high school kids across the country. They’re making the biggest decision of their lives up to that point, so I understand the magnitude of it.
So with that said, here’s one way to completely ruin that big decision you were going to make: get arrested for armed burglary 2 days before hand.
Bishop Moore defensive end Donovan Winter, who was supposed to sign with Michigan State on Wednesday, is still in the Seminole County jail after being arrested Monday night and charged with armed burglary and theft of a firearm.
Winter, 18, was being held on $2,000 bond and also awaiting a GPS device to be placed on him prior to his release, according to jail records.
In a police affidavit obtained by the Sentinel Wednesday afternoon, an officer stated he was dispatched to a scene to check out a trespassing violation.
Upon arrival at a residence in Chuluota, in East Orange County, Rebecca Thurmond met with the officer and advised that her daughter’s boyfriend, Winter, was on the property and she wanted him cited for trespassing. She then, however, said Winter had already left the property.Officers searched for and located Winter, read him his rights and found weapon Kenneth Thurmond confirmed belonged to him. Winter was arrested Winter and transported to the Seminole County Jail “without incident,” according to the report.
