ATHENS, Ga (AP) — Two University of Georgia freshmen football players are in the Athens-Clarke County jail and are charged with multiple felonies.
Defensive lineman Julian Rochester and defensive back Chad Clay were charged with having weapon, a BB gun, in a school zone and second degree criminal damage. The two were arrested by University of Georgia police Monday night.
UGA released a statement early Tuesday saying the second charge is related to property damage. No other details were immediately available.
Coach Kirby Smart says in the statement he’s “disappointed with the poor judgment” of the two, who were among early enrollees for spring practice. Georgia says the two “will be disciplined in an appropriate manner.”
A bond hearing took place at 8:00 AM Tuesday morning. Details from the hearing were not immediately available.
