Saw a picture of his driver's license and information that he was wanted in connection to a September murder

GAINSVILLE, Fla. — A University of Florida student had quite a scare when a Google search of his name revealed a picture of his driver's license next to news that deputies were searching for him in connection to a September murder.

Check out the video below to learn more about the crime and see how the Garcia responded to his discovery.
