According to WSB-TV, starting linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested late Saturday, just hours after the big game. He was arrested in Barrow County on Sunday morning and booked at 1:30 a.m. on a misdemeanor charge before being issued a $1,030 bond. Patrick, who was a passenger in the auto, was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and has since been released after paying a fine.
Patrick had three tackles in the 28-7 win over Auburn that earned Georgia a spot in the College Football Playoff against Oklahoma. He was also arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge as a freshman in 2015 and suspended for one game. According to Georgia's student athlete handbook, a third offense for a drug related offense results in a player being kicked off the team.
