Once is an incident, twice is a pattern and three times is a problem.
Kirby Smart has a problem within Georgia’s football program.
There’s no denying that, not after Jalen Carter’s misdemeanor arrests for racing and reckless driving,
connecting him to the high-speed car crash that killed Georgia football player Devin Willock and recruiting staff member Chandler LeCroy.
Too many people within Georgia's football program throw caution into the wind when behind the wheel of a vehicle.
Police say LeCroy’s blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit,
and that she was driving a Ford Expedition leased by Georgia athletics at speeds reaching 104 mph before crashing on a road with a 40 mph speed limit.
LeCroy was racing Carter, Athens-Clarke County police say, with their vehicles switching lanes,
overtaking other vehicles and driving in wrong lanes as they tried to outdistance each other.
Carter starred on defense for Georgia’s back-to-back national championship teams.
He returned from the NFL scouting combine to turn himself in on the warrant,
and he was released on bond. In a statement, Carter says he expects to be exonerated.
