Kentucky recruit may lose scholarship over Spring Break incident -- tackled security officer into the pool

Daylen Hall - Looking to plow another authority figure

Ahhh, Spring Break in Panama City, Florida.

The beach. The babes. The booze. The boom in business for the local Bar Association. And now — thanks to Kentucky’s 3* CB signee Daylen Hall — the tackling of security officers into hotel pools.

Yes, that’s apparently Daylen you see up there getting into his 3-point stance around the 1:45 mark. Him again, moments later, performing a textbook tackle on that killjoy of a hotel security guard.  Hall was eventually apprehended.

Now, taking the whole assault and battery of a peace officer bit out of it, one has to admit this is otherwise pretty dang hilarious. Spring Break, Panama City — kids these days, right?

Probably not the face Joker was wearing when he watched Daylen's P.C. highlights

Well, something tells me Kentucky coach Joker Phillips — however ironically — may not find as much humor in this incident as Daylen and his St. Xavier teammates did.  We’ll see.

Fingers crossed for the kid and his scholarship offer to Kentucky — that is, while this unfortunate lapse in judgment certainly should serve as a good learning experience, I hope it doesn’t have to be a particularly draconian one.

Unfortunately, I can’t escape the feeling that if Daylen got out of P.C.B. VD-free, he may have no choice but to consider Spring Break 2011 a relative success.

Thanks to YouTube user lionsmgr for what appears to be the original footage and some additional background info. The comments on that video — many of which appear to be from eyewitnesses — are also quite entertaining…
