The buddy system

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.

At some point, Vanderbilt’s gonna start getting some hope because, suspensions.

    Like my players full of piss and vinegar….No telling what they would do with Jake & his motorcycle these days.



    IF the bar doesn’t want to press charges, the COPS are reaching on this IMHO….

    ACCPD Scooter Patrol for the win.


    • Yea, WTH? Get in trouble in a bar , get thrown out on the street, move along.

      Yeah, but just a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge is still progress. Two players in a bar fight downtown would have been charged with felony assault, resisting arrest, public intoxication, and probably littering if this happened 8-10 years ago. Actually it’s surprising no underage drinking charges were placed on Stevenson.

    Just let me know when they kidnap a pig and hold a barbeque. Then I’ll know we’re ready to win it all!

    On an unrelated note, my condolences to Brandon Adams’ family and friends and to the Tech team. It’s always sad to hear of a player, or any kid, dying.

    We can create havoc on offense, too.

    FWIW, this Cloud Bar is in the same location as the old Lowry’s Bar but was universally referred to as “Lousy’s” because…it was lousy.

    This is why you schedule easy games early instead of UT and USCe back to back right out of the gate like we used to in the 90s.

    Ya know, Kirby could probably say something like this: I could dump both of you and replace y’all with 5-star recruits before breakfast. But I’m gonna give you one more chance.

    My first recollection of a football player brawl was against the Night Riders at Coopers in 1975. Half the OLine was suspended for the Clem’s son game. We won 41-0 at Clemson.
