You better believe this kid is from Florida.
A Fort Pierce Central High School football player has been arrested on a lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor charge after his 14-year-old cousin became pregnant with his baby.
Investigators determined the two had sex in late June when the girl was visiting family at Sharieff Inuka Rhaheed-Muhammad’s home in Fort Pierce.
The girl told police that Rhaheed-Muhammad didn’t force himself on her and that the sex “just happened.” He tried again later and she turned him away, according to a police report.
The pregnancy was aborted in November, and genetic testing of the remains showed on Feb. 11 a nearly 100 percent chance that Rhaheed-Muhammad, 17, was the father.
Rhaheed-Muhammad was a 3-star linebacker according to 247 Sports and committed to the University of Louisville. That, uh, probably isn’t happening anymore, because even Bobby Petrino draws the sexual depravity line somewhere, and getting your 14-year-old cousin pregnant is on the other side of it (I hope). It’s good to see Petrino is already attracting his brand of players though.
Rhaheed-Muhammad also had offers from several other high profile programs, including Michigan State, Missouri, Alabama, and Arkansas.
You just have to shake your head at this and tell yourself, “Forget about it, Jake. It’s Florida.”
