ATHENS, Ga., Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Running back Washaun Ealey, who led the Georgia Bulldogs in rushing last season, was arrested Friday following an alleged hit-and-run accident.

Ealey, 21, was allegedly driving with a suspended license when he was involved in an accident in which a parked vehicle was hit on campus, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. He was released from the Clarke County Jail Friday after posting $3,480 bail.

Police told the newspaper the no one was injured in the incident and alcohol wasn't involved.

The newspaper also said Ealey had been charged with speeding and tag violations in May, allegations that led to a failure-to-appear charge and his driver's license being suspended.

Ealey led Georgia with 717 yards on 125 carries in nine games as a freshman last season. It was expected he and junior Caleb King would share tailback duties for Georgia in 2010.
