UGA LB Cornelius Washington arrested for DUI

Cornelius WashingtonGeorgia Bulldogs outside linebacker Cornelius Washington was arrested and charged with DUI early this morning, has reported.

Washington, 22, was pulled over for speeding (92 mph in a 55 mph zone) and driving under the influence by the Commerce Police Department. The police report indicated that his blood-alcohol level was .12. He was released from the Jackson County Jail this morning after posting a $3,500 bond.

The standard UGA punishment for this offense is 10% of competition, so Washington will likely miss this weekend’s Tennessee game at a minimum.

Washington, a junior from Hepzibah, Georgia, has recorded 7 tackles, 2 assists and 3.5 sacks so far this season.

Update: UGA head coach Mark Richt has suspended Washington for “at least” the next two games – at Tennessee (10/8) and at Vanderbilt (10/15).
