Georgia’s Stetson Bennett arrested for public intoxication

Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett was arrested early Sunday on a charge of public intoxication in Dallas.

Dallas police confirmed that the two-time defending national champion was arrested at about 6 a.m. local time after officers responded to a man banging on doors in the Old East Dallas section of the city.

Officers found Bennett at the scene “and determined he was intoxicated,” according to a police press release. Bennett, 25, was arrested and taken to a city detention center. Details about his release were not available. University of Georgia officials have not responded to a request for comment made by Dallas TV station WFAA. As a senior in 2022, Bennett went 15-0 and passed for 4,127 yards with 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

On Jan. 9, Bennett’s Bulldogs pounded TCU 65-7 to claim their second straight CFP national championship. He finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting. Earlier this week, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. projected him as a third-round pick in the April 27-29 NFL Draft. –Field Level Media
