According to Alachua County inmate records, Watkins was booked Tuesday on third-degree felony charges of kidnapping/false imprisonment and domestic battery by strangulation.

It's Watkins' second arrest in 11 weeks involving an alleged female victim, and the incident report this time does little to prove Watkins' innocence. Back in May, he was arrested for trespassing on school grounds following a verbal altercation with a woman that allegedly included destruction of property. The 5-foot-11, 172-pound freshman's nearly certainly not going to be active to open the season in Gainesville after his latest legal troubles.

On the late afternoon of July 20, police say Watkins struck his 18-year-old girlfriend with an open and closed fist on both sides of her head and on her shoulders while holding her down on a dorm room bed.

According to the report, the woman sprayed Watkins with mace in order to escape. Police say he then followed her to Vanguard High School in Ocala, where she was a student. Watkins allegedly turned violent after a verbal incident and threw the unnamed woman's phone and shattering her screen before kicking her vehicle.

World looks to the skies as 'blood moon' eclipse begins
The first phase of the Chandra Grahan will set in from 11:54 pm and the total lunar eclipse is estimated from 1:00 am on July 28. The Moon will begin a long journey through Earth's shadow on Friday afternoon, with the complete trip taking just over 6 hours.

Total lunar eclipse around the world
During the eclipse , the moon is expected to take on a red sheen, with the phenomenon being described as the " blood moon ". On the night of the total lunar eclipse , Mars and the moon will be roughly six degrees apart in the night sky.

Blood moon - 21st century's longest lunar eclipse
The full moon will begin to darken as it enters the Earth's shadow at 7.15pm, with the total eclipse beginning at 9.30pm. This curious fact is because the orbits of all planets around the Sun are not a ideal circle, but an ellipse.

Watkins was not enrolled at the time, and Mullen only announced that Florida would look into the incident.

The Gators have suspended Watkins indefinitely. The former high school wide receiver was set to add cornerback depth for the Gators this season.

Watkins recently enrolled in classes at UF.
