It turns out Tyrique Stevenson wasn’t alone when he was arrested yesterday.
A statement from the Athens-Clarke County Police Department has identified a second Georgia player involved in the incident which resulted in the arrest of freshman defensive back Tyrique Stevenson early Sunday morning.
According to the statement, senior wide receiver Tyler Simmons and Stevenson were part of an alleged physical altercation with employees at Cloud Bar in the early hours of Sunday morning. Cloud Bar has declined to press charges against the two UGA players but both have been charged with disorderly conduct by the Athens-Clarke County Police.
“At 12:50 am, an ACCPD officer was working off-duty at the bar and was alerted that a fight was taking place inside the bar,” ACCPD said in a statement. “The officer called for assistance and multiple ACCPD officers responded to a chaotic scene with numerous bar patrons spilling out onto the sidewalk and street.”
Stevenson is listed on the ACCPD website as being booked into the Athens-Clarke County jail at 2:42 a.m. on Sunday and released at 3:26 a.m. on $1,000 bond. Simmons, however, was not arrested and is not listed on the website. ACCPD did confirm that both players are being charged.
Mentoring, for the win.
