Post Richt addresses recent arrests, announces suspensions

Thursday July 3, 2008

Georgia fans have been waiting to see how Mark Richt would react to this week’s arrests, and they got some answers this afternoon. Richt discussed the arrests and announced suspensions for some, though not all, of the players recently arrested.

"I’m certainly disappointed in a few of our players who have made poor decisions during the off season," Richt said. "It is of great concern and we take it very seriously. They will be dealt with accordingly and will pay a price. Each one will be disciplined based on the severity of their actions."

He went on to highlight the positive activities and behavior of the vast majority of the team which included everything from mission work to volunteer activities.

So for those keeping score at home, here are the suspensions and results of the offseason incidents as they stand now (in order of severity):

  • DE Michael Lemon (felony battery): suspended indefinitely (per athletic department policy)
  • OL Clint Boling (alcohol-related): two games
  • FB Fred Munzenmaier (alcohol-related): two games
  • DB Donovan Baldwin (alcohol-related): one game
  • OL "Bean" Anderson (simple battery): no suspension announced (yet)
  • OL Trinton Sturdivant (simple battery): no suspension announced (yet)
  • DE Jeremy Lomax (concealed weapon): charges dropped, no suspension
