Defensive lineman Chauncey Rivers was arrested for marijuana possession for the third time in seven months, and subsequently dismissed from the team on Friday.
A UGA spokesman confirmed Rivers’ dismissal.
“It’s extremely disappointing,” head coach Kirby Smart said in a statement. “He’s been given previous opportunities to remain on our football team but continues to exhibit a lack of good judgment and commitment to the standards we require and expect from our players. He’s put himself in a difficult position but we hope he finds a path that will provide some direction in his future.”
My advice is to transfer to Colorado.
I can’t let this go without passing, though.
There are four charges listed on the Dekalb County web site, including… parking in a disabled parking spot.
Honestly, I’m surprised it’s taken so long for that charge to crop up in a player arrest setting. Seems tailor-made for Jimmy’s crew.
