Former Atlantic, Boynton Beach football star arrested again


George Hunter, one of the top senior defensive backs in Palm Beach County, is facing criminal charges again — this time on charges that he had 580 grams of marijuana he planned to sell, Boynton Beach Police say.

Hunter, 18, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail early Friday on a charge of possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, and possession of marijuana with intent to sell. He was released later that day, jail records show.

Boynton Police made the arrest while conducting surveillance operations at businesses on Seacrest Boulevard and Federal Highway. Additional details about his arrest were not immediately available Monday.

Hunter is a former Atlantic High and Boynton Beach High star who finished his high school career in the fall. He is the No. 19 player on The Post’s Big Board but did not sign on national signing day.

The teen is already facing charges from February for trying to sell six stolen iPhones to a Boynton detective, according to an arrest report. Hunter faces two counts of dealing in stolen property on the internet.

At the urging of Hunter’s mother, Judge Dina Keever ruled at his first court appearance after that arrest that Hunter must attend school every day at Atlantic High after he is released or be in violation of his release terms.
