He was arrested at 3:21 A.M. and released after paying $2,500 bond.  Morris will be a junior at UGA this upcoming season. He is one of the starters who helped lead the Dawgs to a tie for the SEC East title. Morris was also suspended for the first three games of last season for violating team rules.

An Alabama defensive lineman is also facing legal trouble. According to AL.com, junior college transfer Jarran Reed was arrested Sunday morning in Tuscaloosa and charged with DUI.
