Since winning their second consecutive College Football Playoff National Championship in January, four players have been arrested related to their driving. Three of them have been charged with reckless driving.

In February, linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson was arrested for reckless driving and racing on highways and streets.

According to the UGA Athletics Association, the arrest was in connection to an incident on January 10 in Athens.


In March, defensive tackle Jalen Carter was charged with reckless driving and racing in connection to a January 15 crash that killed recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy, 24, and UGA offensive lineman Devin Willock, 20.

Police say Carter was racing the car driven by LeCroy through downtown Athens at the time she crashed.

He pleaded no contest and was sentenced to two months of probation, a $1,000 fine, 80 hours of community service and a defensive driving course.

Earlier this month, freshman wide receiver De’Nylon Morrissette was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, speeding and following too closely.

Channel 2 Action News has reached out to the UGA Athletics Association for a comment on Rosemy-Jacksaint’s arrest, but has not heard back.
