Long Weekend for two UGA Players

Less than a week after University of Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans resigned from his job due to DUI charges. The UGA football team had two players arrested over the weekend for alcohol related trouble.

Dontavius Jackson and Tavarres King both face charges stemming from their nights out on the town Saturday morning. Jackson, who is  a backup running back faces not one, but six misdemeanor charges, including one charge of driving under the influence. Wide receiver Tavarress King, who may be the Bulldogs second best receiver behind A.J. Green was also arrested and charged with minor in possession of alcohol.

This is the third time this week that a UGA football player has been arrested and Jackson has been no  stranger to mishaps in Athens, just a few months ago he was mentioned in the alleged attach of a couple in a taxi.

Both have been suspended indefinitely from team activities. Coach Mark Richt has said Jackson will miss at least 6 games, while King will miss at least the season opener.

No matter who is to blame for the recent increase in arrests, some think something is not right in Athens.
