McIntosh was booked at 5:45 a.m. and later released on $2,000 of bonds.
With running backs James Cook and Zamir White moving on to the NFL, McIntosh is expected to be Georgia’s lead back this season, with junior Kendall Milton also slated to be a major contributor.
Kenny McIntosh rushed for 328 yards and three touchdowns last season, adding 242 yards and two more touchdowns through the air.
Eli Ricks, Alabama newcomer and former All-American cornerback, was booked on charges of speeding, driving without insurance and possession of marijuana Sunday evening in Mississippi.
Eli Ricks, who transferred to Alabama from LSU this offseason, was arrested by Mississippi Highway Patrol and booked at 5:15 p.m.
According to an online database, it was Ricks’ first marijuana possession charge and his bond was set at $0.
A 6-foot-2 cornerback from California, Eli Ricks started his career at LSU where he earned Freshman All-SEC and AP All-America honors during his first season.
He entered the transfer portal in November, roughly a month after the firing of head coach Ed Orgeron.
Ricks is expected to compete for a starting role at Alabama, which lost starting cornerback Josh Jobe to the NFL.
Demond Demas, Texas A&M wide receiver, was arrested on an assault/family violence charge after allegedly injuring his girlfriend Saturday, according to a probable cause affidavit from the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the affidavit, he allegedly initiated a verbal argument with his girlfriend before it escalated into a physical altercation, with Demas pushing her head into the wall. She told officers she then bit him on his shoulder, at which point he grabbed her and threw her off the bed and onto the floor, which caused her front teeth to go through her bottom lip.
“The injury caused bleeding, loose teeth, swelling and a hole to the bottom lip,” the affidavit said.
Brazos County jail records show that Demond Demas was arrested and released on $5,000 bond on Wednesday.
A Texas A&M spokesman said Demond Demas, who was the No. 47 recruit in the ESPN 300 for the Class of 2020, has been suspended by the university and is not currently with the football program while the athletics department follows school protocol.
Texas A&M wide receiver Ainias Smith was arrested early on Wednesday ahead of his scheduled appearance at SEC Media Days, according to multiple reports.
Ainias Smith was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated, unlawful carrying of a weapon, and marijuana possession (less than two ounces).
The 21-year-old wide receiver was booked in the Brazos County Jail after his arrest by Texas A&M university police.
Smith led the Aggies with 47 receptions and six touchdown catches a season ago for the 8-4 Aggies as a team captain.
He also placed second on the team with 509 receiving yards.
Ainias Smith has started 21 games for Texas A&M the past three seasons and has 112 career receptions for 1,321 and 15 total touchdowns. He added 373 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
The senior is expected to play a major role in the Texas A&M offense this coming season as the team looks to integrate a new starter at the quarterback position.
Smith’s experience and skill set will be key to developing the Aggies’ downfield passing game to complement what looks like a solid rushing attack behind center.
A&M is projected to finish second in the SEC West this season behind Alabama, but is scheduled to visit the Crimson Tide in a crucial matchup on Oct. 8.
The winner of that game should have a major advantage in the SEC standings and the College Football Playoff race.
Smith is the second Texas A&M player to be arrested this offseason after wide receiver Demond Demas, who was arrested on an assault/family violence charge and removed from the team before entering the transfer portal.
Davonte’ Neal, an assistant coach on the Idaho State football team, has been charged with first-degree murder.
The Idaho State Journal reports that Neal was arrested on May 25 in connection with a murder that occurred in Arizona in 2017.
The university told the outlet that Neal has been placed on administrative leave, and that the football team plans to terminate his contract.
“I have been in constant contact with (ISU head coach Charlie Ragle) who has known Davonte’ for many years and never had any knowledge or suspicion of a possible crime of any kind,” ISU athletic director Pauline Thiros told the Journal.
“The news of Davonte’ Neal’s arrest and charges in Arizona was a great shock. Going forward, we will cooperate in every way possible, safeguard our program and culture, support each other and our students, and allow the legal process to work. The news is devastating and we hope for resolution for all involved.”
ISU president Kevin Satterlee added that “Idaho State takes all allegations involving our employees very seriously, and we are committed to the safety and well-being of our community. We are fully cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation.”
Miller, a redshirt freshman, was arrested by Ohio State Highway Patrol officers Friday morning. According to the police report, Miller refused a Breathalyzer test and was also cited for driving in marked lanes. He was released from custody Friday and was issued a summons to appear in court for the offense.
Ohio State confirmed in a statement that Miller had been suspended but did not specify a length of time or parameters for the suspension.
Jack Miller has attempted 14 passes this season, completing seven for 101 yards. He was dressed for Ohio State’s game against Penn State on Oct. 30 and went through warm-ups with starter C.J. Stroud and backups Kyle McCord and Quinn Ewers.
William Mote, Georgia football long snapper, apparently celebrated his team’s national championship victory a little too enthusiastically.
According to a report from the Athens Banner-Herald, William Mote was arrested in the early morning after allegedly breaking a single pane window of a downtown Athens law office.
“William Mote told Athens-Clarke County police he was intoxicated after drinking at the Silver Dollar Bar, went to see a friend and mistakenly went to the law office, according to a police incident report,” the Banner-Herald wrote.
The redshirt sophomore, who has been the Bulldogs’ long snapper on punts the last two seasons, was charged with a second degree felony for damage of greater than $500. He was booked into the Clarke County Jail and eventually released on a $1,300 bond.
Georgia capped off a 14-1 season with a 33-18 victory over Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game last Monday night.
Alabama defensive coordinator Pete Golding was arrested early Thursday morning for DUI, according to Tuscaloosa County jail records. The report states Stephen Thomas Golding was arrested by the Northport Police Department around 1 a.m. and jailed overnight with a bond set at $500.
“I am deeply sorry for the actions that led to my arrest last night. I sincerely apologize to my family, everyone in our organization, including our players, Coach Saban, the staff, The University of Alabama, and our fans,” wrote Golding in an apology released by the university. “Regardless of the outcome of this pending investigation, I did not uphold the values I have for myself and the values of the Alabama football program. I am committed to learning and growing from this mistake and I will work to earn back the trust of those who I have disappointed.”
Golding, who is 37 and goes by Pete, was hired by Alabama in 2018 to be the team’s inside linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator along with Tosh Lupoi, but he was elevated to the sole DC position following Lupoi’s departure in 2019. Alabama has finished in the top three in the SEC in total defense in three of Golding’s four seasons in Tuscaloosa. The 2021 Crimson Tide defense finished second in the SEC, allowing just 304.1 yards per game, and third in defensive yards per play at 4.77.
“Alabama Athletics is aware of the incident involving Pete Golding,” said a school statement. “We are mindful of the seriousness of the situation and will continue to gather more information to address this personnel matter.”

CENTRE COUNTY Pa. — Jonathan Sutherland, a Penn State Football player, was charged July 2 for firing a gun that had a stray bullet wind up in a person’s condo in Patton Township.
According to Patton Township police, redshirt senior safety, Jonathan Sutherland, 22, was charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief in Centre County.
Sutherland was at a party when he discharged the 9 mm handgun across the courtyard into a narrow line of trees, May 21, according to police.
Police found that Sutherland had “little to no experience handling a firearm,” according to the criminal complaint. Sutherland told police he got the gun from another person at the party and was told that the firearm “was not loaded.”
After firing the gun, the bullet traveled to a resident’s condo and went through a guest bathroom before going through the master bathroom and then falling to the floor. The bullet caused around $2,000 worth of damages, according to police.
Along with the misdemeanor charge for criminal mischief, Sutherland is also charged with disorderly conduct. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for August 4.
“We are aware of the charges against Jonathan Sutherland. These alleged actions do not reflect the values and standards of our program and will be addressed,” Penn State Athletics said, in a statement.
“We will not comment any further as this is an ongoing legal matter,” they continued.
