Latavious Brini, Georgia reserve DB, arrested on battery charge

Latavious Brini The Fulmer CupLatavious Brini, Georgia reserve defensive back, was arrested this week in Athens on a misdemeanor charge of simple battery.

Brini, a redshirt sophomore from Miami Gardens, Florida, was booked Thursday night into the Clarke County Jail, where he remained for about two hours before being released on a $1,850 bond, according to the jail’s online booking information.

“This type of behavior is extremely disappointing and not representative of the standards for our football student-athletes,” Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart said through a release. “His discipline will be handled internally, and hopefully good lessons will be learned that will lead to better choices moving forward.”

The 6-foot-2, 196-pound Brini was a three-star member of Georgia’s 2017 signing class and redshirted his first year. He competed in five games this past season and made his lone career tackle during the opening 45-0 rout of Austin Peay.

In 2017, Brini faced a felony forgery charge after allegedly passing a counterfeit $100 bill at an Athens pet store, but that charge was dismissed due to a lack of evidence.

Malik Demby, who was a defensive back in the 2018 season, was arrested on Saturday night in east Las Cruces.

In October 2017, Demby addressed the media before NMSU beat Texas State. It was a historic season when NMSU won the Arizona Bowl, breaking the longest bowl game drought in the country at the time.

Demby was charged with aggravated assault against a household member with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment. The circumstances surrounding his arrest are not yet known.

Coastal Carolina’s Preston Carey joins Fulmer Cup race after starting DB picked up for DUI

Preston Carey The Fulmer CupPreston Carey started five games for Coastal Carolina in 2017 and was expected to be a starting corner in 2018.

Such is the case at Coastal Carolina, where the Myrtle Beach Sun News reports that starting cornerback Preston Carey was arrested for driving under the influence and booked into a local jail around 4:15 a.m. Friday. Online records confirmed the news.
