Gators standout arrested for stalking

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida receiver Chris Rainey has been charged with aggravated stalking.

Rainey spent the night in the Alachua County Jail and is scheduled for an initial appearance Tuesday morning.

According to Gainesville Police, Rainey sent a woman he dated on and off the last three years a text message that read, "Time to die," after leaving her home Monday night.

Officer Jesse Bostick said the incident started when the woman fell asleep and missed a call from Rainey. Rainey went to her home, they talked and she told him to leave. According to Bostick, the woman got the text a short time later and called police.

Rainey has six receptions and a touchdown this season. He missed part of Saturday's game with a concussion.
