Georgia football has had three players arrested in the last month. Freshman defensive back Tyrique Stevenson is the latest to get in trouble.

Stevenson, a five-star early enrollee out of Miami, was arrested early Sunday morning on misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges, according to reports. He was booked at the Athens-Clarke County Jail and released on a $1,000 bond.

Stevenson joins junior linebacker Jaden Hunter and sophomore defensive back Latavious Brini as Bulldogs who have been arrested recently.

Hunter was arrested on misdemeanor charges last week, including " driving with a suspended license and standing/stopping/parking in a prohibited area."

Brini was taken into custody on February 28 on a simple battery charge.

“This type of behavior is extremely disappointing and not representative of the standards for our football student-athletes,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said at the time of Brini's arrest. “His discipline will be handled internally and hopefully good lessons will be learned that will lead to better choices moving forward.”

Georgia continues spring practice this week.
