Two Georgia football players arrested in Barrow County

04 December 2017

The two were held overnight at Barrow County detention center in Winder, Georgia.

Stanley was charged with DUI drugs, possession of marijuana of less than an ounce and speeding.

Starting linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana less than one ounce, according to Barrow County Sheriff Jud Smith. His bond was set for $1,030.


ESPN reports people familiar with the incident claim Stanley was driving when a deputy pulled their vehicle over. They said the officer smelled marijuana coming from their auto, and that the players attempted to throw a bag of suspected marijuana from the vehicle.

UGASports.com reported Sunday morning that Patrick, a junior linebacker, is facing a misdemeanor charge after his arrest late Saturday night. He totaled three tackles in Saturday's SEC championship game. The previous two were related to marijuana possession, the second of which caused him to be suspended four games this year. Patrick, who was a passenger in the auto, was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and has since been released after paying a fine. Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart and a team spokesman weren't immediately available for comment.

UGA finished No. 3 in the rankings and the Dawgs will face No. 2 Oklahoma.
