University of Georgia football players arrested in Barrow County

According to UGASports.com, the school's student-athlete handbook calls for dismissal from the team after a third drug-related offense. According to 11Live News, Patrick is facing marijuana possession charges.

Just hours after Georgia defeated Auburn to win its first SEC Championship since 2005, thus sealing its place in the College Football Playoff final four, the Bulldogs were dealt a blow in the form of two arrests. Whether Stanley gets the same punishment remains to be seen, but it doesn't appear he has been arrested during his Georgia career.

Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick and wide receiver Jayson Stanley were arrested on misdemeanor marijuana charges Saturday night on Georgia Highway 316 shortly before midnight. Patrick's bond was set at $1,030 and "he was quickly in and out", Smith said.

Patrick and Stanley were held overnight at the Barrow County detention center in Winder, Georgia. He also had a marijuana arrest in 2015.

Patrick has started seven games this season, including the SEC championship win over Auburn on Saturday when the junior from Mays High in Atlanta had three tackles and a quarterback hurry.

A little over five hours after that game, one starter on that team would find himself in the back of a squad auto. He had three tackles in the game.
