His status for the top-ranked Gators' game against second-ranked Alabama Saturday is now extremely questionable. Coach Urban Meyer is not expected to comment on the arrest until after today's practice.
Dunlap, the MVP of last year's national championship game, was found asleep at the wheel at an intersection, according to Gainesville police.
GPD spokesman Keith Kameg said officers responded to a reckless driving call and found a red 2000 Chrysler stopped at a green light at an intersection near 200 SW 34th St. in Gainesville at 3:25 a.m. ET. The car did not move after the traffic lights changed several times. When police approached the car, Dunlap was slumped over in the driver's seat.
Kameg said the driver's side window was cracked and officer Robert Rogers was able to awaken Dunlap, though Dunlap "would only open his eyes momentarily and then fall back asleep."
Dunlap is tied for the team lead with seven quarterback sacks and would potentially be a first-round pick if he leaves for the NFL after this year.
