out of court
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
Andrew Meyer will not face criminal charges if he
completes 18 months of voluntary probation, the State
Attorney's Office said in a news release Tuesday.
Meyer must also donate $150 to the American
Cancer Society or perform 10 hours of community
service, records stated.
Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior who was
Tasered during a forum with Sen. John Kerry on Sept.
17, was originally given felony and
,- misdemeanor charges that could
have meant up to five years in
State Attorney Bill Cervone
-. wrote in the release that Meyer
,'- did not pose any risk to the safety
or peace of the community.
Meyer Meyer released apology let-
ters to the UF community, the
University Police Department and UF President
Bernie Machen on Monday. The UF and UPD letters
were mandated by the State Attorney's Office as part
of Meyer's deal.
The deferred prosecution agreement, which was
finished Wednesday, was not filed with the court un-
til Tuesday so Meyer could complete these letters.
Meyer has also accepted punishment from UF for
violating the Student Code of Conduct, but the details
of his penalty could not be disclosed.
Meyer's attorney, Robert Griscti, said Meyer has
withdrawn from classes because of the aggressive at-
tention he's received from students and the media.
He plans to return in January, Griscti said.
"I do not believe a Taser should have been used
on me," Meyer wrote on his Web site. "Tasers are not
However, the Police Benevolent Association, a po-
lice advocacy group that staged a news conference in
front of Tigert Hall on Tuesday morning, said Tasers
are widely accepted as injury-reducing devices.
UPD belongs to the group.
The group said a Wake Forest University study of
962 Taser cases found no deaths, and 99.7 percent of
the Tasered individuals had no injuries or only mild
Many of the mild injuries were caused because
people fell down after the shock, the study stated.

Police expect more calls on Halloween
* GPD FIELDS 50 CALLS A NIGHT
AROUND HALLOWEEN WEEKENDS.
By KATIE GALLAGHER
With trick-or-treaters on the streets and
parties all over town, Halloween could
mean extra work for police.
Gainesville Police Department spokes-
man Lt. Keith Kameg said he expects GPD
to stay pretty busy in the days surrounding
"It's not uncommon that we'll respond
to 50 or 60 calls a night around Halloween
weekends," he said.
Sgt. Keith Faulk, spokesman for the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office, said he
expects to get a lot of calls on Wednesday
night, as well.
"In comparison with a home football
game, it would probably be higher than
that even though it's celebrated in the
middle of the week," he said.
University Police Department spokes-
man Capt. Jeff Holcomb said
Public Halloween is a quiet night on
The dorms aren't a big
destination for partygoers, he said.
Also, UPD doesn't deal with the safety
issues of trick-or-treating because the
dorms are only open to residents, he said.
Kameg said he considers Halloween to
be a major holiday in Gainesville, but it's
calmed down since the mid-'80s, when
people would attend a Halloween ball he
described as "Sodom and Gomorrah."

"Halloween is pretty laid back," he
said. "It's just really busy because people
go out and have a good time."
He said he doesn't see too many prob-
lems with pranks or mischief.
Faulk said he's seen few problems, too.
"We do get calls of eggings and toilet
paper and shaving cream," he said, "but
not any major issues."
Police seldom see permanent damage
from vandalism, he said.
Kameg said that while police aren't
looking to arrest anyone for it, another is-
sue might be indecent exposure.
"Some of the costumes are clothing-
light," he said.
Faulk said drivers should be careful
to keep their eyes on- the road and not be

On the day he was Tasered, Andrew Meyer told his
mother he was happy because his arrest would bring
important issues to light.
Recordings of Meyer's first telephone call from the
Alachua County Jail and videos from inside the police
car that took him there were made available Tuesday,
the same day his probation notice and personal state-
ments were released.
During his first call, he told his father, Joel Meyer,
that he knows he got "excited" at the speech by Sen.
John Kerry on Sept. 17, but he didn't think it war-
ranted getting Tasered and arrested.
"What a joke," Meyer said when his
Local dad picked up. "What happened to the
News First Amendment, right?"
Joel Meyer reminded his son not to
say anything he'd regret, to which Meyer responded,
"You wanna sue the bastards?"
Meyer and his father speculated about "FBI hench-
men" who they said were probably listening to the
When he addressed "whoever is listening," Joel
Meyer said, "If you touch a hair on his head if
anything happens to him there's gonna be really
During a call the next day, Meyer joked to his father
that the jail was enjoyable.
"I wanted to smile for my mug shot," Meyer said.
Joel Meyer reminded his son to be humble.
"No smiling, you know, for the cameras," Joel
In the car the day before, Meyer asked police about
the legality of his arrest, chatted with them about the
UF football team and complained about how tight his
"I can't feel the circulation in my hand here, bro,"
He asked officer Lynn Mallo to explain why he was
charged with resisting arrest with violence.
"I would have never hit you," he said. "You were
just doing your job."
Mallo said she was trying to help Meyer by telling
him to calm down.
"Honestly, I read '1984,' and I felt like, like.you guys
were gonna take me out back and execute me," Meyer
said, leaning forward in his seat. "I was so scared."
Mallo assured Meyer police wouldn't kill him.

- The 5th annual Lance Dalton Memorial Silent
Auction, hosted by the UF chapter of Friends for
Life of America, is being held to assist deserving
families in paying their medical bills, said Rachel
Cannon, the co-chair of the event and a child-
education junior at UF
This year's funds will be given to two families,
one with a 3-year-old boy with leukemia and the
other with a 16-year-old girl with Hodgkin's lym-
phoma, Cannon said.
Friends for Life of America would not release
any more information about the patients or their
families for legal reasons, she said.
Online bidding began Monday and will end
Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Bidding will continue live on Wednesday
from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on the Reitz Union
Colonnade, she said.
Last year, the event raised about $3,000, and
this year's goal is $5,000, she said.
"The items are things that you're
buying for yourself. But at the same
time, you're giving to other people."
It cost families about $150,000 per leukemia
treatment and the amount of treatments varies
depending on the case, Cannon said.
Cannon said the items up for bid include a
Kaplan course worth $1,500 and Disney park
passes worth more than $100.
"The items are things that you're buying for
yourself," she said. "But at the same time, you're
giving to other people."

We put local celebs into
the perfect costumes
No, there's not a Victoria's Secret show downtown
tonight. It's Halloween, arguably college students'
favorite holiday. Drink specials abound, costume
contests bring out the best or worst in everyone, and
of course, our favorite part: half-off candy tomorrow.
As we sat in our office decorated with real spiderwebs
and severed body parts (much scarier, don't you think?),
we thought about what we'd like to see everyone dressed as
this year. So let us entertain you as you prepare for tonight's
parties and put the finishing touches on your costume.
We thought long and hard about what UF President
Bernie Machen would dress up as, but we finally decided
he should spend tonight as a deranged dentist, because re-
ally, what's scarier than spending an hour in that chair?
Plus, that's what Bernie is tenured as, so it's perfect.
We can already see him with a Halloween Horror Nights-
worthy drill, covered in blood. He'd wear a necklace of his
victims' ahem, patients' teeth.
He'd floss our teeth until our gums bleed and instead
of filling our cavities, he'd drill us new ones. Worst of all,
that's not a shot of Novocain.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley should dress up
as David Beckham, since his parents are British. Moseley
and Beckham have the same pretty-Brit-boy look. Student
Senate President Kevin Reilly would dress up as his lovely
wife Posh Spice. Together they'd cause a sensation on the
third floor of the Reitz Union and a highly fashionable
one, at that.
As Gainesville's mayor, Pegeen Hanrahan deserves to
spend the day dressed as a queen. In her beautiful gown
and lovely crown, she'd transform Gainesville into a magi-
cal realm with one wave of her wand. Towing problems:
solved! Traffic lights: synchronized! The Oaks Mall: better
stores! Ah, it's good to be queen.
Age of Dinosaurs professor Paul Ciesielski would dress
up as a Tyrannosaurus Rex but end up looking more like
Andrew Meyer would dress up, of course, as a disen-
Gators quarterback Tim Tebow could dress up as a
priest. We can only hope his vial of Holy Water and his
cross can exorcise the demons that have been haunting the
football team, before it faces Vanderbilt a team that's
given us close calls in the past few years.
Word on the street is that the towing companies all
banded together to have a costume party and all their
employees are dressing up as pirates. Go figure.
Economics professor Mark Rush could dress up as a
slice of pizza from Leo's, and the Director could go as a
Burrito Bros. burrito. We just hope they don't accidentally
eat each other.
Billy Donovan and Urban Meyer would dress up as
Mario and Luigi. Using their superpowers, they'd lead
their cast of characters into Bowser's castle to rescue
Princess Peach. Or they'd just take their teams into champi-
onship games and win. Yeah, we like that much better. But
how awesome would it be to see them dressed up in those
matching red and green outfits?
Whatever you decide to dress up as tonight, we hope
you have a great Halloween.

Hey kids, what's the BEST Halloween treat you got this year?!?
Halloween history explains traditions
or this week, I'm adding a little holiday twist to my
work for Halloween, not Homecoming. Vincent
Massaro, the Monday columnist, might disagree,
but I've seen some strange happenings around Gainesville
over the past few days, things that might have something
to do with the supernatural themes Oct. 31 entails.
This year's pumpkin crop suffered from bad weather.
Andrew Meyer did an about-face and apologized for his
actions at Sen. John Kerry's forum. Gov. Charlie Crist fi-
nally approved a few tuition and fee increases.
But Halloween still has historical and spiritual signifi-
cance beyond candy and costumes.
Tomorrow, Nov. 1, my Catholic grandparents will go
to church to celebrate All Saints' Day. As the name indi-
cates, it is a special day set aside for all of the saints in
the church. From their perspective All Hallow's Eve is the
vigil held before the service.
However, when Catholicism made its way up to the
British region in medieval times, the Brits, Scots and Celts
mixed the Christian tradition with their own pagan festi-
vals, the most famous being Samhain, a celebration when
people would parade around in animal-skin costumes.
That's why the holiday conjures up more images of
witches, ghosts and black cats than of feasts or crosses.
Historically, other legends surround Halloween, con-
tributing to its mystique. The Celts believed sacrifices
were necessary to appease evil spirits, so they left food
and sacrifices for them, which became the root of trick-
The Romans had a festival that honored Pomona, the
goddess of fruit trees who was often depicted wearing a
crown made of apples. This led to the tradition of bobbing
The use of orange and black for Halloween has its ori-
gin in the occult. The unbleached
beeswax candles used in church
services for the dead were colored
orange, and caskets were draped
On a side note, a few magi-

firstname.lastname@example.org Houdini today, 81 years after he
died from a punch in the stomach.
Every year they hope the world's greatest escape artist can
flee from the trap of death, but every year they come away
Don't blame your religious friends for being skittish
about participating in such pagan rituals. I attended a
high school affiliated with the Presbyterian church. Every
year on Halloween night, the church holds a "Creation
Celebration" in lieu of all the aforementioned rituals.
Of course, candy and costume parties are still present,
and everyone has a good time. Ultimately, the most im-
portant thing is to know the history of Halloween, or any
other holiday, in order to truly understand and celebrate
Also, Halloween is the inaugural festival for a litany of
other fall and winter celebrations, the most prominent be-
ing Thanksgiving and Christmas. And for UF, Halloween
falls on the week of the Homecoming parade, Gator Growl
and the Homecoming game against Vanderbilt this year.
So until then, have fun, don't drink too much at parties
and enjoy having Friday off so you can scream your lungs
out for two fantastic days.
Oh, and wish me luck I've heard its dangerous to
spend tonight in Broward Hall.

Letters to the Editor
Meyer not responsible for others' reactions
I am writing to express my dissenting opinions from those
expressed in Tuesday's editorial, "Over and Out." I am disap-
pointed that it repeatedly blamed Andrew Meyer for all of the
reactions to the Tasering incident. Yes, Meyer is responsible for
actions at the Sen. John Kerry forum. However, he is not re-
sponsible for how UF administrators, students and.the world
responded to his actions. It is not his fault that the Kevorkian
speech got moved to next semester. This is the responsibility
of the community of which we are all a part. By attending this
university, we are agreeing to support its policies.
If we do not, it is our responsibility to change them. Please
pardon the suggestion if it sounds patronizing, but if you
don't agree, please read Plato's "The Republic" and take a
course on political philosophy.
UF graduate student
GPS plans will make students' bus rides better
Student Government was pleased to note on Monday that
the Alligator is anticipating the global positioning system
improvements for Regional Transit System just as much as
we are. However, with such a focus on the timeline and cost
of implementing GPS on RTS, students still don't know how
much they will benefit from these improvements. SG is sure
this is a huge step for a system that students interact with on
such a regular basis, and will help all Gainesville residents bet-
ter control their travel and their time.
The most observable results would be access to an online
map of the RTS bus routes, tracking the location of buses in
real time. On top of that, students will be able to send text mes-
sages and receive responses with the projected arrival time for
the nearest bus to each stop on its route. There will also be sev-
eral LCD screens placed at major stops on campus, including
proposed screens at the Hub and Rawlings bus stops. These
screens will display maps of all the routes which run through
Technology plays a huge role in the lives of UF students.
With these improvements, SG is helping to bring RTS up to the
modem standards of instant communication.
While these benefits will certainly help students, the most
important benefits won't be immediately apparent. RTS will
be able to track bus movements in a more precise manner, bus-
es will arrive at more even intervals and RTS will also be able
to couple the information gained from GPS and rider-counting
in order to design more efficient routes.
This will ultimately translate into improved and more
consistent wait times for students. Ultimately, installing GPS
on RTS buses will provide many immediate benefits, but more
importantly, it will create an avenue for improvement by lay-
ing the foundation for future change.
SG is dedicated to not only improving the lives of students,
but making a positive impact on the community that supports
our university. We are sure that this program will help im-
prove Gainesville and UF for current and future generations

article "Meyer apologizes in letter to students."
I have to admit, I suddenly like him a whole lot
I know he was definitely at least a bit RUDE and he
was asked to stop his turn however, he was express-
ing political views while asking a few questions at a po-
litical 'town hall' meeting. Since when can't an American
be outraged and demand answers at an 'open' town hall
meeting? The use of force was entirely unnecessary. The
speaker supposedly wanted to answer the questionss.
Why not allow some political discourse?

Gators to wear orange, black in Halloween match
UF middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth spikes the ball during UF's
sweep of the Mississippi Rebels on Sunday afternoon.
* UF PLAYS ITS SECOND MID-
WEEK GAME OF THE SEASON.
By EVAN DREXLER
Tonight, in a rare midweek
match, UF plays a South Carolina
team (11-12, 4-10 Southeastern
Conference) that should be fright-
ened to face the No. 10 Gators (20-
1, SEC 13-1).
Since Mary Wise became
the coach in 1991, UF has won
seven of its eight matches on
The only loss came in a sweep
at the hands of Florida State in
Current seniors have fond
memories of a Halloween sweep
over Mississippi State in 2004,
and two seniors have pleasant
recollections of non-volleyball
Halloweens earlier than that.
Senior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton's favorite Halloween
costume as a child was the blue,
puffy-leg getup of Princess
Jasmine from the Disney movie
"I was really excited about it,
but it was really, really cold out-
side," she said. "So I had to wear a
jacket over my costume, and that
"It was just heartbreaking. I re-
ally loved my costume."
Senior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth also had her share
of costumes growing up, though
she admitted she is more into
Thanksgiving and Christmas than
She usually spends Halloween
night at her computer, handing
out candy when someone rings
"The coaches do a really
good job of keeping us on a
similar schedule no mat-
ter where we are when we
actually get there."
UF senior outside hitter
The only costume she can
remember is when her mother
dressed her up as a clown one
"I probably was a clown back
then," Killingsworth said.
Though they won't be wearing
any costumes tonight in South
Carolina, they still get to dress up
for the occasion a little.
The team will try to be festive
by wearing its orange-and-black
jerseys, Hampton said.
The Gators learned from their
loss at South Carolina last year
- the only SEC venue where they
lost and plan to stay concen-
trated on volleyball.
Tonight will be the team's sec-
ond and last Wednesday home
match of the season.
Last time, the Wednesday
match was followed by a loss to
Arkansas in a Friday match.
This week, the Gators will not
play again until a Sunday match
against that same Razorbacks
The midweek match can cause
problems for the team's rhythm,
but the coaches are not going to
let that happen.
"The coaches do a really good
job of keeping us on a similar
schedule no matter where we
are when we actually get there,"
"We need to make sure that's
not a factor when we get ready
What will be a factor is South
Carolina's home atmosphere.
"Any time you play on the
road, it's tough," Hampton said.
"And then you play in a smaller
gym, the crowd's right on you
and the facility's pretty tight.
We're going to have our work cut
out for us."
Freshman backup center practices with defensive line
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
UF offensive lineman Mike
Pouncey practiced with the de-
fensive line Tuesday, Gators coach
Urban Meyer said.
The defensive line took a major
blow this week by losing starting
defensive tackle Javier Estopinan,
who tore his anterior cruciate liga-
ment in the Georgia game.
Tackles Terron Sanders (left
high ankle sprain) will miss sev-
eral weeks, and Brandon Antwine
(lower back) is likely out for the
Pouncey is currently listed as
the backup center to Drew Miller
and, as a recruit, was ranked as the
seventh-best offensive guard in the
nation, according to Scout.com.
In mid-October, Meyer said he
expected Pouncey and his twin
brother, Maurkice, to have bright
futures with the Gators.
MOVING ON UP: Redshirt fresh-
man Justin Williams could work
his way into the Gators' receiving
corps, Meyer said.
Williams notched two tackles
against the Bulldogs for a season
total of five.
"That's the first thing you really
have to do before
you get involved
in the offense is
make a play on
"He's getting a
Williams lot better. He's
one of the most
improved guys right now."
WHERE'S WALKER?: Meyer was
somewhat elusive about running
back Chevon Walker's status on
Walker played in the first five
games of the season, but he hasn't
seen the field since the Gators'
Sept. 29 home matchup against
When asked if the redshirt
freshman was still on team, Meyer
replied: "He has got some personal
issues he has to take care of. As of

Davis, Marsh expected to step in for depleted D-line

When it comes to UF's young
defensive linemen, it's better to let
them explain what practice has been

"I'm getting better, but it's hell."
With starting tackle Javier
Estopinan out for the year with a
torn left anterior cruciate ligament,
the Gators don't have many op-
tions left. Reserve tackle Brandon
Antwine is also probably done for
the season with lower back issues.
A few weeks ago, losing reserve
redshirt freshman' Terron Sanders
to a high ankle sprain wouldn't be a
big deal. Not anymore.
"Right now, it's a mash unit," UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "We're try-
ing to get that pieced together."
UF's line is in such shambles it
had backup offensive lineman Mike
Pouncey practice at tackle Tuesday.
Now it's redshirt senior tackle
Clint McMillan and a bunch of un-
derclassmen on the inside.
"One soldier goes down, another
soldier has to step up," McMillan
said. "That's something they've got
to do or we won't be successful. I've
got to be a leader for these young
guys, and when you're in that fire
you've got to step up."

Of course; Tennessee roots aren't always a good thing when
