Kevon Godwin arrested, suspended from Gulf Coast basketball team

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Gulf Coast sophomore guard Kevon Godwin has been suspended following an arrest Thursday.

Panama City Police Department logs show Godwin was arrested on a charge of “sale of meth within 1000 feet of a place of worship," stemming back to a sale allegedly made to a Blountstown Police Department confidential informant on August 14, 2019. According to the police report, Godwin was driving while passenger Emanuel Deveaux made an exchange of $65 with the informant.

Gulf Coast announced the suspension via an email release, but will not comment further until more details are made available.

In 17 games, Godwin is averaging 13.1 points, 4.1 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game.

He returned from a one month absence due to a hand injury on Wednesday, scoring eight points in 18 minutes in a loss to Tallahassee.

The Commodores are 19-5, tied for the Panhandle Conference lead and ranked No. 12 in the country heading into Saturday night's game at Northwest Florida.
