Georgia wide receiver Jayson Stanley was arrested on a DUI charge, as well as misdemeanor possession of marijuana and speeding charges, hours after Saturday’s dominant 28-7 victory over Auburn in the SEC Championship Game, according to 11 Live News.

Stanley is the second Bulldogs player arrested since the title game win, joining teammate Nartez Patrick, who was charged with a misdemeanor for marijuana possession and released from custody after paying a “small fine,” according to 11Live News.


“The junior was arrested in Barrow County late Saturday night on an unspecified misdemeanor charge, according to the Barrow County online jail report. Bond was set at $1,030.

The arrest took place at 11:50 p.m. but no other details were available and Georgia officials have yet to comment. A spokesman for the Barrow County Detention Center declined comment and said to call back during business hours on Monday for more information.”

The junior had previously been arrested for possession of marijuana in October, as well as in 2015. He was also cleared after being investigated for allegedly having marijuana in his dorm room last October.

Patrick’s last arrest resulted in a four-game suspension that was based on Georgia’s student athlete handbook.

The status of both players for the College Football Playoff has yet to be determined. Georgia will face Oklahoma on January 1 in the Rose Bowl Game as part of the CFB Playoff semifinal round.
