Bulldog football player arrested

A Georgia Bulldog football player has been arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Junior Middle Linebacker Natrez Patrick, one of the leading tacklers on this year’s Bulldog football team, was picked up by Athens-Clarke County Police. Word of the arrest comes on the eve of the 5th ranked Dogs Saturday game against the Vanderbilt Commodores, a noon kickoff in Nashville.

Patrick was booked into the Athens-Clarke County jail at 11:37 p.m. Thursday night on charges of marijuana possession less than one ounce, and stopping/standing/parking/ where prohibited. He posted bond and was released at 12:25 a.m. Friday morning.

It is not Patrick’s first brush with the law. He was arrested on a similar charge in 2015 and served a one-game suspension. As per the UGA student handbook, a second marijuana or alcohol related arrest would result in a suspension of 25 percent of the season’s games, which translates in football to a four-game suspension.

Patrick played his high school football at Mays High School in Atlanta.
