    ATHENS, Ga. - University of Georgia wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman was dismissed from the team Friday.

    Bulldogs Head Coach Kirby Smart confirmed the news in a statement to Channel 2 Action News:

    “Jeremiah Holloman no longer represents the University of Georgia football program. We expect every member of our team to uphold the highest standards and values of the University of Georgia and Georgia football. It is disappointing when this does not happen."

    The dismissal comes after an investigation that was launched earlier this month into an alleged assault in 2018.

    Channel 2 Action News obtained the police report that said the alleged incident took place in April 2018 after the 2018 G-Day game.

    The victim alleges that Holloman choked her and punched her in the face. She received six stitches after the alleged incident.

    According to the police report, the victim did not wish to pursue criminal charges against Holloman.
