Georgia kicker Marshall Morgan arrested for BUI
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia sophomore kicker Marshall Morgan is facing a possible suspension following his arrest for boating under the influence.
According to Putnam County Sherriff’s Chief Deputy Russell Blenk, Morgan was arrested Saturday night on Lake Sinclair by a Georgia Department of Natural Resources officer. Morgan was charged with operating a watercraft under the influence and towing a skier without a life preserver on board.
Blenk says Morgan was released Saturday at 10:35 p.m. on $1,724 bond.
Georgia spokesman Claude Felton said Tuesday coach Mark Richt is aware of the situation. If Morgan is suspended for one game, he would miss the Bulldogs’ opener at Clemson on Aug. 31.
Morgan, from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., made 8 of 14 field goals as a freshman and is projected as the starting kicker in 2013.
