Former NFLers Lito Sheppard and Jabar Gaffney – who played together in high school and college at Florida – apparently have some sort of ongoing beef that dates back to 2012. I don’t know how closely people have kept up with Gaffney since his playing days ended, but he’s had some legal issues with a couple of separate arrests for weed and battery.
Now he’s being accused of vandalizing one his former teammates’ cars at Jacksonville Beach over Father’s Day weekend. You can see in the video that somebody walks over to Sheppard’s car and pours something in the gas tank, while the female slashes the tires.
First Coast News reports that Sheppard’s car broke down on the way home that night, so he went back and checked security cameras.
The Jacksonville Beach Police Department responded to a call from Sheppard, who said he was eating inside the Pier Cantina when his vehicle was vandalized. Sheppard said he wasn’t aware that his vehicle was damaged until he was driving it home from the restaurant. He said once he pulled over, he had to get his vehicle towed to the BMW dealership for repair.
Sheppard said he called the restaurant and they allowed him to view the surveillance video. He named former Florida Gators teammate Derrick “Jabar” Gaffney and his longtime girlfriend as suspects, according to the police report. He said the two have an ongoing feud that began in 2012.
“Gaffney retrieved some type of tool and a container from the suspect’s vehicle, walked over to the passenger’s side of the victim’s vehicle near the gas tank, and pried it open,” the report said. “Gaffney then poured an unknown substance from the container into the gas tank … The unknown female walked around the vehicle and stabbed all of the tires with a sharp object.”
The suspects fled the scene in an unknown direction. Sheppard said his vehicle sustained about $14,000 in damages.
So we have no clue as to why these two have been feuding for six years, but it apparently must be something serious. We have Gaffney going full ex-girlfriend to the car of someone he’s known for decades.
If I had to guess, somebody banged somebody’s wife.
