Georgia sophomore running back Isaiah Crowell is facing three charges, including two felonies, after an early morning arrest in Athens, Ga.
The Athens-Clarke County online booking log lists Crowell, arrested and then booked at 3:37 a.m., as facing a bond of $7,500. He remained in jail early Friday with charges of possession of a concealed weapon, carrying a weapon in a school zone and possession of an altered ID. The latter two charges are felonies in Georgia.
The most serious charge involves the school safety zone. The Georgia campus would be considered such an area. According to the County web site, the felony is punishable by "not less than two nor more than ten years." If convicted, Crowell could also be fined up to $10,000 on that charge.
Crowell was suspended immediately by Georgia.
Crowell was the SEC freshman of the year in 2011 with 850 rushing yards and is listed atop the Bulldogs' depth chart at running back as a co-starter with Ken Malcome.
