AJC - June 29th

ATHENS – Georgia tailback Isaiah Crowell was arrested early Friday morning and remains in Athens-Clarke County Jail on three weapons charges, two of them felonies.

The sophomore from Columbus was booked at 3:37 a.m. on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a weapon in a school zone and an altered ID mark. His bond was set at $7,500. No other information was immediately available.

According to the UGA Student-Athlete handbook, a felony arrest means “immediate suspension from athletic competition.” A “Comprehensive Action Plan Committee,” consisting of UGA athletic administrators and the Faculty Athletics Representative, will then investigate and review the facts and forward a disciplinary recommendation to the athletic director. Recommendations include “dismissal from the team, suspension from competition, reduction in aid and/or cancellation of athletic aid.”

Crowell, who came to UGA in 2011 as the No. 1-rated running back prospect in America, was slated to start for the Bulldogs at tailback this season. He rushed for 850 yards and 5 touchdowns as a freshman despite missing playing time due to two suspensions and injuries. Crowell was benched for the first quarter of the Vanderbilt game on Oct. 15 as a disciplinary punishment and was suspended for the Nov. 5 New Mexico State game, reportedly for failing a drug test.

Police spokesperson Hilda Sorrow said Friday morning she was still gathering information and could not immediately provide any additional details. More information to come when it’s available.
