Records Show Huguely Had Other Run-Ins with Law Enforcement

Police records show that the University of Virginia student accused of beating a female lacrosse player to death had two run-ins with authorities in Florida.

"The Washington Examiner" reports Thursday that George Huguely of Chevy Chase, Maryland was charged with possession of alcohol by a minor in 2007 in Palm Beach County, where his family has a home in Manalapan.

A year later, a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report details an incident in which Huguely got into a "very heated" argument with his father and cousin on a 40-foot fishing boat.

Deputies said Huguely wanted to go back to the beach, but his father would only take him home, so he dove into the Atlantic Ocean to swim the quarter-mile to shore.

A passing vessel picked him up. No arrests were made.

Huguely is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Virginia student Yeardley Love.
