Georgia Cornerback Juwuan Briscoe Arrested On Traffic-Related Offenses

Georgia cornerback Juwuan Briscoe was arrested on Saturday night, according to a report by Macon.com that cites the Athens-Clarke County jail logs. 

Briscoe, a sophomore, was arrested on two traffic-related charges: not having a license and not wearing a seatbelt. He was arrested by University of Georgia police and released after about an hour after making his $1,000 bail ($500 for each charge). 

The Bulldogs have yet to say if Briscoe will face any team punishment. He'd been practicing with Georgia's first-team defense and earned a most-improved award at the end of spring practice.

Briscoe becomes the fifth player to be arrested since Kirby Smart was hired, per Macon.com. 

Defensive lineman Chauncey Rivers (possession of marijuana) was arrested in December and defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter (underage possession of alcohol) was arrested in March.

Freshmen Julian Rochester and Chad Clay were arrested earlier in April on felony possession of a weapon, a BB gun, in a school and criminal damage to property.

Georgia opens its season Sept. 3 against North Carolina at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
