Andrew Meyer, the UF student who was Tasered and arrested by University Police Department officers Monday, was released from jail at 9 a.m. today.

Meyer, a telecommunication senior, spent the night in jail but was in good spirits, said Robert Griscti, Meyer's lawyer.

Griscti said Meyer and his family are very surprised at the UPD officers' actions and do not think using a Taser was appropriate.

He said UPD has not attempted to communicate with the family.

Aside from some minor traffic violations, Meyer has no criminal record, Griscti said, adding that he would fight for complete dismissal of the charges.

Welcome to the discussion.
