You have the right to REMAIN SILENT...
FULL AUDIO | Exclusive: Arrested UF Player Says 'We're Gonna Get Off'

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- First Coast News obtained the 34-minute police recording made the morning two University of Florida basketball players and a team manager got arrested.

Players Erik Murphy and Cody Larson and manager Joshua Adel apparently don't know they're being recorded, since they admit to breaking into cars and underage drinking. Police put the recorder in the backseat of the police car.

They were arrested early Sunday morning outside Scarlett O'Hara's bar in St. Augustine.

In the recording, player Murphy makes up several possible stories to pass on to police. Team manager Josh Adel rejects all of them, saying he told the players to stop breaking into cars.

But the recording also brings up issues like implied preferential treatment by Gainesville police agencies and different levels of punishment on the UF basketball team.

"Bro, do you know how f*** I am because of y'all dumb m***** f*******," Adel tells Murphy in the police car. "I'm fired. Like, you'll have another shot. I'm done. I have no second shot, bro."

1. I went to a small college with a star basketball team.
These kids were for the most part uninterested in studies and were given apartments, free phones and immunity from what is now known as 'date rape' in exchange for their services. Any 'misunderstandings were famously smoothed over by the team's coach. Meanwhile serious academic programs at that school went begging because the president fancied having a winning team.

This was in the '80's. Same as it ever was...
