According to the Clarke County Jail online booking report, Bellamy was arrested by Athens-Clarke County police and booked into the Clarke County Jail at 5:02 a.m. and was released at 6:22 a.m. after posting bonds totaling $2,000.
A former 4-star recruit, Bellamy is currently second on Georgia’s depth chart at the outside linebacker position behind starter Jordan Jenkins. Bellamy will be lost for at least 20 percent of the season (2 games) per the school’s policy for DUI-related arrests, meaning he will likely be unable to play for the games against Clemson, and South Carolina.
College kids are going to make mistakes, and that can’t be avoided. It just seems unfathomable that scholarship players who know what kind of a spotlight the program is currently under would even risk doing something that could jeopardize their future with the team.
This makes seven arrests of Georgia football players this offseason, although the Dawgs are still far from being in the running for the Fulmer Cup (a mythical trophy awarded to the team with the most arrests and player suspensions/dismissals prior to the start of the season).
Fall camp can’t get here soon enough to get these kids minds on something besides “how can I do something really stupid and childish”.
