Two Georgia football players arrested in Barrow County

This would be a third violation of Georgia's drug policy, which subjects him to dismissal from the team.

Barrow County sheriff's officials told Channel 2 Action News Patrick was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana less than one ounce.

Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested late Saturday ninght, hours after the Bulldogs beat Auburn 28-7 in the SEC championship game. Whether Stanley gets the same punishment remains to be seen, but it doesn't appear he has been arrested during his Georgia career.

The former Mays standout was suspended four games as a second offender following an early October arrest for two misdemeanor charges involving possession of less than once ounce of marijuana and parking in a prohibited area.

A spokesman for the Barrow County Detention Center declined comment and said to call back during business hours on Monday for more information.

A little over five hours after that game, one starter on that team would find himself in the back of a squad vehicle. Patrick was released on $1,030 bond Sunday, according to court records obtained by ESPN.

This marks the third arrest for Patrick in two years.

On the season, Patrick has tallied 35 tackles in eight games. Patrick played in a combined 21 games in 2015 and 2016, including 11 starts, and totaled 81 tackles.
