Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested by police late Thursday night on a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge.
The 20-year-old Patrick, a junior from Atlanta, was arrested in Athens, Ga., and charged with misdemeanor possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and prohibited stopping, standing or parking, according to Athens-Clarke County Jail records. He was booked at 11:37 p.m. and released on $1,500 bond early Friday morning.
The 6-foot-3, 234-pound Patrick had a previous run-in with police. He was suspended one game in 2015 during his freshman season after being arrested on misdemeanor marijuana charges.
Patrick has started every game for the Bulldogs this season and is tied for third on the team with 17 tackles.
The No. 5 Bulldogs (5-0) play at Vanderbilt (3-2) on Saturday afternoon.
