We reported earlier that Bulldogs linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested following the SEC Conference Championship game on Saturday night in Atlanta, Georgia. Wide receiver Jayson Stanley has also been arrested after their big win over the Auburn Tigers.
Stanley was arrested and charged with DUI, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and speeding. According to 11Alive, Stanley and Patrick were together with Stanley as the driver when they were pulled over.
Patrick’s misdemeanor charge stems from marijuana possession. It is his third arrest while as a member of the Bulldogs football team.
It’s also the second-time in as many months that Patrick has been arrested for possession of marijuana. He was arrested in October for the same thing and then was suspended four games by head coach Kirby Smart.
Patrick started for the Bulldogs, while Stanley was a special teams’ player on Saturday.
It’ll be interesting to see how head coach Kirby Smart handles this situation. With Patrick arrested three times, there’s a good possibility that Smart may just elect to cut ties with the linebacker.
He’ll have to make his decision known in the coming days, because his coaching staff, along with himself, will have to start preparing for the Oklahoma Sooners in the College Football Playoff. The sooner he gets a hold of this situation, the sooner he’ll get to prepare for the Sooners.
