ATHENS — Georgia safety Alec Ogletree has been suspended for at least one game following a misdemeanor theft charge.
Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said in a statement Friday that he's disappointed and Ogletree will miss Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette.
Police Chief Jimmy Williamson says his officers had spoken to Ogletree and that the freshman planned to turn himself in Friday.
Williamson says the warrant stems from a June incident in which a student reported a scooter helmet missing from a student athlete academic center. Williamson says the helmet was later reported to be in Ogletree's possession. A warrant was issued following an investigation.
Williamson says the 6-foot-3, 215-pound safety from Newnan will be booked on a theft by taking charge and likely released on bond.
