Georgia football linebacker arrested for driving charges

Georgia starting inside linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson was arrested Wednesday night on two driving charges.

The Hyattsville, Md., native who just completed his sophomore season was booked for racing on highways/streets,

 and reckless driving after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The arresting agency is listed as the Clarke County Sherriff’s Office.

Dumas-Johnson was booked at 6:34 p.m. and released at 7:15 p.m., according to the Clarke County online booking report.

Dumas-Johnson's name is in the University of Georgia online police log on Wednesday from a Jan. 10 incident at 8 p.m..

That's the day when the football team returned from Los Angeles after beating TCU the night before in the national championship game.

The log said warrants were issued Tuesday from an investigation into two vehicles traveling next to each other,

 on College Station Road in a "reckless manner at high speeds that fled the area upon sign of the officer."

No other details were immediately available.

UGA athletics issued a statement Wednesday night: “We are aware of a report relating to a January 10 incident on College Station Road involving one of our student-athletes.

The alleged conduct does not reflect our program’s values or the high standards we have established.

 As this is an open matter involving a student, we are not able to provide any additional information at this time ,

and will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement.”
