UGA Forward Brandon Morris Arrested on Marijuana Charge

UGA junior forward Brandon Morris was arrested early Sunday morning in Athens and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

The Athens Banner-Herald’s Marc Weiszer first reported the news today after discovering Morris’ name on the inmate log of the Athens-Clarke County Sheriff website.

According to the log, Brandon Rasheed Morris, born in 1994, was arrested at 3:21am ET and released at 11:54am ET after posting a bond of $2,500.

This is the second infraction for Morris, as he was suspended for the first three games last season by head coach Mark Fox. Reasons for the suspension were never disclosed.

If this is Morris’ second violation of UGA’s drug policy, he will be suspended for no less than 30 percent of the 2014-15 season.

Since the charge is a felony, Morris is immediately suspended from athletic competition according to UGA policy. More from the ABH:

An athletics comprehensive action plan committee will forward a recommendation to athletic director Greg McGarity. Options include dismissal, suspension, reduction or cancellation of athletic aid. McGarity will approve, modify or return the case to the committee.

Last season, Brandon Morris averaged 8.6 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

    What a bum.. Another shining example of dog student/ athlete fiasco.
    There is no discipline and kids run wild. UGA is an embarrassment to the state
    of Georgia.
