Florida's Erving Walker & His $301 Taco

Erving Walker steals taco and fined $301Point guard Erving Walker is the all-time leader in assists at Florida. He led the Gators to the NCAA West Regional Final last season, blowing a late lead against Louisville.

Walker had 37 steals for the season, but it was his 38th which earned all the headlines. 

On March 30 in Gainesville, Walker ordered a taco from a street vendor at 1 AM. For some reason, he then fled with the purloined taco, without paying the $3 charge. He was subsequently apprehended by the police after a foot chase of several blocks. 

Walker was arrested and charged with retail theft and resisting an officer without violence. He admitted to stealing the taco, but told police he was" just playing around." Apparently, the Gainesville police did not think it was very funny.

Walker's poor decision to steal the taco ended up costing him $301, the amount he was ordered to pay as punishment after pleading no contest to charges of misdemeanor theft and resisting arrest on Thursday.
