NAPLES — During the Florida Everblades' 5-2 victory over a South Carolina team Friday night, one of the Stingrays' best players was conspicuously absent from the lineup.
Trenton Campbell was listed as a healthy scratch, but missed the game while serving an indefinite suspension after being arrested early Friday by Collier County sheriff's deputies. He is accused of auto theft, a felony, after witnesses said he got behind the wheel of a taxi outside of a North Naples bar and drove off.
According to the arrest report, Campbell, 29, of Charleston, S.C., approached Checker Cab driver Timothy Davis outside of Blue Martini just after 2 a.m. Friday. The report gives this account:
Campbell asked Davis for a ride, but Davis said he had to pick up a previously scheduled fare. When Davis left his car unattended in an attempt to find the fare, according to two witnesses, Campbell got in the cab and took off.
