A Florida college football player and a female accomplice have been arrested in connection with a violent home invasion inside a luxury Orlando condo earlier this month, according to police.
Justin Hodges, a defensive back with the University of Central Florida, was one of several men who barged into a 28th-floor apartment with guns on Jan. 9, severely beat an occupant and robbed the residence before fleeing, officials said.
The Fort Lauderdale native has since been dismissed from the football team, according to Fox 35.
Orlando cops said Hodges is a friend of a female suspect in the case, Nevaeh Mosher, who once dated the victim.
Mosher, who was also arrested, allegedly gave Hodges instructions on entering the building before he and two other suspects carried out the home invasion robbery.
