There was more trouble for the Georiga football team over the weekend. Two more Dawgs were sent to the pound early Saturday. At this rate we may see a new show on NBC this fall called “UGA PD BLUE”.
Here is the latest crime blotter from Athens:
On Sunday Bulldogs coach Mark Richt suspended two football players following their arrest on alcohol related charges early Saturday. Backup tailback Dontavius Jackson and starting split end Tavarres King have been suspended indefinitely from all team activities.
More specifically, Richt said, Jackson will be required to sit out at least the first six games of the season and King will miss at least the season opener Sept. 4 against Louisiana-Lafayette. Richt said he is still gathering information, which could lead to additional penalties.
Jackson and King were arrested early Saturday after their vehicle was pulled over by UGA Police. Jackson, who is 20, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, underage possession of alcohol, following too closely, leaving the scene of an accident, violation of the move-over law and violation of learner’s permit
King is 19 years old and was charged with underage possession of alcohol.
USC and Georgia play Septmeber 11th in Columbia. That is assuming Georgia still has enough players to field a team and someone sober enough to keep the athletic department afloat until then.
