According to Georgia Football Coach Kirby Smart, University of Georgia wide receiver and former Newton High standout Jeremiah Holloman has been dismissed from the football team after an investigation into a 2018 assault was launched earlier this month.
ATHENS — Georgia linebackers Robert Beal and Brenton Cox were arrested on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana on Tuesday. The pair was arrested by the UGA Police Department at 3:13 p.m. with less than one ounce of marijuana, according to the Athens-Clarke County jail booking recap report. The arrest takes place less than one week after Coach Kirby Smart said disciplinary issues that had cropped up earlier this spring would be “handled the right way.”
According to the jail booking recap report, Stevenson was booked at 2:42 a.m. He was released at 3:26 a.m. on a $1,000 bond.
Jaden Hunter faces misdemeanor charges that include driving with a suspended license and standing/stopping/parking in a prohibited area. Specifics of the arrest were not immediately available. The University of Georgia Police Department is reporting the arrest of a Georgia Bulldog football player.
Hunter, the son of former Bulldog player Brice Hunter, is a rising junior on this year’s team. He played at Westlake High School in Atlanta. The arrest comes as Hunter and his Bulldog teammates are beginning spring football practices.
Latavious 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.
Kevin Purvis, 37, who is listed as associate equipment manager on the Georgia Athletic Association’s website, was booked into Athens-Clarke County Jail at 8:48 p.m. Friday and charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor. Three of the felonies are for illegal eavesdropping or surveillance. The other felony was for possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and the misdemeanor was for possession of marijuana.
Purvis’ arrest came nearly a month after an unidentified person found a camera hidden in a shower area of Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall. UGA officials called police Feb. 27 and an investigation began. Arrest warrants for Purvis were executed Friday by the Athens-Clarke County sheriff’s office, and Purvis turned himself into the jail later that night. He remains incarcerated on $16,000 in bonds.

In news related to utter absurdity, here’s a photo of the pot discovered in Georgia LB Natrez Patrick’s seat, which led to his arrest on Dec. 3.
Details on what led to the felony forgery arrest of Georgia freshman defensive back Latavious Brini, stemming from a counterfeit bill being passed.
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.
