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.

As expected, Georgia inside linebacker Natrez Patrick is being held out of Saturday’s game at Vanderbilt following his arrest for marijuana possession late Thursday night.

UGA’s student-athlete handbook calls for an immediate suspension for a marijuana arrest. This was Patrick’s second marijuana arrest, following one his freshman year in 2015, and a second violation calls for a four-game suspension.
