Breaking News

0722-christian-garcia-roster-pic-03A University of Florida linebacker is being hailed as a hero for helping to stop a man who was allegedly raping a woman behind a bar near campus. 

The football player is Christian Garcia — who was working security at the 101 Cantina in Gainesville on Thursday night when he saw something suspicious by the dumpsters. 

Garcia told FirstCoastNews … at first, he thought he saw two people having sex … but quickly realized the woman was passed out … so he decided to take action. 

“The girl was basically unconscious, so I knew there was no way she could be giving consent.”

Garcia grabbed the guy and told him to stop — but the man allegedly responded by throwing punches at the 6’1″, 233-pound junior.  

The suspect escaped — but cops launched an investigation and eventually arrested 34-year-old Christopher Shaw. Officials believe he may have raped other women as well.
