After Georgia AD got caught drunk-driving, back-up quaterback Zach Mettenberger was booted off the team for sexual battery, then you would have thought that any members of the Bullodgs team would want to keep their heads down.
Following up the early-week arrest of cornerback Jordan Love's arrest for obstructing a police officer after the cop came along to investigate accusations of people shooting off fireworks in the courtyard of a UGA hall (apparently it was a "breakdown of communication" (God only knows what that means), the Dogs have got themselves back in a whole world of trouble.
Now, redshirt sophomore tailback Dontavius Deshawn Jackson and Split end Tavarres King were also arrested with underage possession of alcohol, and Jackson was also charged with (we're stunned here) a DUI too.
In a town like Athens, where driving after having a few beverages isn't the biggest surprise in the world (as tough as the police are, experience from this writer can tell you that drink-driving goes on on a pretty regular basis down there), Jackson must have been driving pretty badly.
SEC East fans, you'll understand that any feeling of joy that those in Athens felt after the arrests of the lovely chaps in Orange on July 9th has been tempered somewhat by a blotted copybook of their own. Florida fans can now look down their noses at Georgia (and their butt-stroking ex-QB) and Tennessee (and their gas station robbers), because this year only WR Frankie Hammond was "nicked" by police. The charge? You've guessed it....
And it's not all SEC East: Iowa's defensive end Broderick Binns, also booked for drunken driving and so was Louisville's starting corner Johnny Patrick, who was 'gotten' for midemeanour assault.
Anyway, we're off for a beer. Anyone left on a football team care to join us?
