UGA linebacker Davin Bellamy is suspended for the first two games of the 2014 football season, head coach Mark Richt confirmed today.
Bellamy was arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and speeding early on Saturday, July 26. He spent a little over an hour in the Athens-Clarke County Jail before posting a $2,000 bond.
The suspension is per UGA Athletic Department policy, which stipulates a loss of %20 of the season for a DUI arrest.
Davin Bellamy will miss the season-opener at home on Aug. 30 against the Clemson Tigers and the first SEC game of the season two weeks later on Sept. 13 at the South Carolina Gamecocks. His first game eligible will be at home vs. Troy on Sept. 20.
Bellamy (6-5, 235) signed with Georgia in February 2013 out of Chamblee High School. He is currently listed as Jordan Jenkins’ backup at the “Jack” position on the preseason depth chart.
Would like to apologize to #dawgnation for my immaturity. I have embarrassed myself, my family, & my brothers. I will gain your trust back
