ATLANTA, July 2 (UPI) -- University of Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans cried and tried to bargain with a trooper during a drunk driving arrest this week, police allege.
An arrest report submitted by Georgia Trooper M. Cabe in connection with Evans' Wednesday arrest in suburban Atlanta alleged the UGA official cried uncontrollably just before he was booked into Atlanta City Jail and asked to be let off with a warning, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Cabe alleged that Evans had "red, bloodshot, watery eyes and droopy eyelids" and emitted "a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage."
The report indicated a woman in the car with him, identified as Courtney Fuhrmann, 28, was arrested for disorderly conduct and was described as "very loud and obnoxious" and "obviously intoxicated."
The Journal-Constitution quoted the report as saying the trooper found a pair of red panties between Evans' legs.
"I let this university down, I let my family down, I let those in the Bulldog Nation down," Evans said in an apology issued Thursday.
The newspaper said Evans, who is married and has two children, is scheduled to make his first court appearance July 12. He faces charges of drunken driving, illegal lane change and failure to submit to an alcohol test.
