The Georgia Bulldogs are coming off their second-straight National title victory, but the offseason is not going so well.
Aside from losing so many talented players to the NFL Draft, the team is now dealing with a player on the team who has gotten himself arrested.
Georgia wide receiver De’Nylon Morrissette was arrested on Monday and charged with a DUI — driving under the influence of drugs —, driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, and Class D license restrictions.
His arrest is the latest in the team’s string of run-ins with the law.
Morrissette will be a sophomore at Georgia this fall. He played in 11 games for Georgia last year as he hauled in four passes for 34 yards. He signed as a member of the 2022 recruiting class and is from Stone Mountain, Ga. He caught three passes for 15 yards in Georgia’s spring game.
This is the third driving-related arrest this offseason for Georgia.
In January, Jamon Dumas-Johnson was arrested for racing and reckless driving while Jalen Carter was arrested on the same charges. That was on the same day Georgia offensive lineman Devin Willock and Georgia recruiting staff Chandler LeCroy died in a car crash. LeCroy was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash.
Georgia defensive back Javon Bullard was arrested this fall on a DUI charge. Georgia wide receiver Rara Thomas was also arrested this offseason, but on a family violence misdemeanor and false imprisonment charge.
Georgia coach Kirby Smart has to be sick of all of this by now.
