Former Florida Gators DB Tony Joiner Arrested For Allegedly Murdering Wife
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
On Saturday, former Florida safety Tony Joiner was arrested and charged with the murder of his wife, Heyzel Obando, in 2016...

quote:

Obando was found dead in her apartment on Valentine’s Day 2016. The Fort Myers News-Press notes that police considered the death suspicious from the start and ruled it a homicide two months later. The warrant for Joiner’s arrest in the unsolved case was obtained Friday.

Joiner, 33, played for Florida from 2004-2007, making him a Ron Zook recruit who played most of his career for Urban Meyer, who coached at Florida from 2005-10. Joiner was made a team captain by Meyer in his senior season. During that 2007 season, Joiner was arrested for breaking into the towing lot where his girlfriend’s car was being held.


Joiner was a team captain during the 2007 season. According to a New York Times article, he was roommates with Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow during his time at Florida.

Sure he was a thug from the get go. He was probably assigned to Tebow to get him straight. You can't fix stupid, though.

Tebow is a bad influence.

Tebow roomed with some real winners.

Can’t save everyone. It is sort of silly that people try to connect the dots vs someone committing a crime and Tebow knowing him 12 years ago.
