Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick arrested hours after SEC championship game

Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick arrested hours after SEC championship game

Barrow County Sheriff Jud Smith told the Athens Banner-Herald that Patrick was charged with possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana.

Hours after UGA's win over Auburn in the SEC Championship game in Atlanta, two players on the Georgia Bulldogs football team have been arrested. He was in a vehicle with fellow teammate and receiver Jayson Stanley. Patrick, a passenger with Stanley driving, has only been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession, but he could be in for something of a real punishment.

"Bulldogs starting linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested on an undisclosed misdemeanor charge in Georgia, according to online records". The previous two were related to marijuana possession, the second of which caused him to be suspended four games this year.

The arrest took place at 11:50 p.m. but no other details were available and Georgia officials have yet to comment. He paid a "small fine" and was released from custody, the station reported.

This is Patrick's third arrest.

Patrick logged three tackles in Saturday's SEC Championship Game and is sixth on the team this season with 35 tackles. Barrow County is adjacent to Clarke County, where the University of Georgia is located.

A little over five hours after that game, one starter on that team would find himself in the back of a squad vehicle.
