UGA football player arrested on marijuana charge

Natrez Patrick 

CLARKE COUNTY, Ga. — Georgia starting inside linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested on a marijuana-related charge, the second such arrest for Patrick in the past two years.

Patrick was arrested at 11:30 p.m. on Thursday night on two charges: Possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, and “prohibited stopping, standing or parking.”

Patrick has started every game this year for Georgia (5-0), which plays at Vanderbilt on Saturday at noon.


Two years ago, Patrick and then-teammate Chauncey Rivers were arrested for possession of marijuana. Patrick served a one-game suspension.

UGA’s student-athlete handbook calls for a four-game suspension for football players who incur a second marijuana violation
