ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt has suspended two players the day after their arrests on alcohol-related charges.
Sophomore tailback Dontavius Jackson was charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident and other motor vehicle offenses early Saturday morning. Richt says Jackson, a backup, has been suspended for a minimum of six games.
Sophomore split end Tavarres King, a returning starter, was charged with underaged possession of alcohol and has been suspended for at least one game by Richt.
Richt says he is disappointed in the players' decision-making and that each will "pay a stiff price."
Each player has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities.
