Two Georgia players arrested on marijuana charges

His bond was set for $1,030.

Merely hours after playing in Georgia's SEC Championship win over Auburn, the junior was arrested in Barrow County late Saturday night on an unspecified misdemeanor charge, according to the Barrow County online jail report. Authorities say Patrick was a passenger in a auto pulled over late Saturday that was driven by Georgia backup wide 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.

School officials have yet to comment. According to 11Live News, Patrick is facing marijuana possession charges.

Patrick had three tackles in the Bulldogs' 28-7 win over Auburn; despite missing the four games, he is sixth on the team with 35 tackles. This is his third marijuana-related arrest.

Patrick was arrested just last month on the same charge, but this is his third arrest total. Smith didn't have details on the arrest, but a Barrow County police spokesman told 11alive.com that Stanley was pulled over for going 87 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone.

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