Joiner attended Haines City High School in Polk County.
The statement did not elaborate on what led to the arrest.
Media outlets reported that Joiner was being held without bond Sunday in the Polk County Jail.
It was unclear if Joiner has retained an attorney who could comment on the charges.
The reports noted that Joiner, as a junior player, led all of UF's defensive backs with 59 tackles. During his senior year, Joiner had 64 tackles and two interceptions. His final season, Joiner was teammates with freshman tight end Aaron Hernandez, who would eventually go on to play for the New England Patriots. Hernandez was later convicted of murder and killed himself in prison in 2017.
