UGA D-lineman Arrested

Georgia defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt was a arrested Tuesday night on a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespassing/property damage with the a family violence designation and it didn't take long for Kirby Smart to release a statement regarding his senior defensive lineman's run in with the law.

“I’m disappointed in the misconduct that is outlined in the incident report," Smart said. " This is not indicative of the behavior we expect from our student-athletes who represent the University of Georgia and our football program. We will address it internally in the appropriate way.”

He was booked into the Athens-Clarke County jail at 11:35 p.m. and his bond as set for $1,500. That bond hasn't yet been posted. As of 7:15 a.m. ET on Wednesday, he's still listed as "currently incarcerated." The arresting agency is listed as the Clarke County Sheriff's Department, indicating that a warrant was likely served for his arrest.
