Georgia DE Jonathan Ledbetter Arrested For DUI, Possession Charges

Georgia sophomore defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter was arrested early Sunday morning. 

The former four-star recruit was arrested by Athens-Clarke County Police for suspicion of of driving under the influence of alcohol and for underage possession of alcohol. 

The 6-foot-4, 251-pound defensive end was booked shortly after 6 a.m. 


Ledbetter’s bail will total $2,000, with $1,500 of it on the DUI charge and $500 on the underage possession charge.

This is Ledbetter’s second alcohol-related arrest. In March, Ledbetter was arrested for underage possession of alcohol and possessing a false identification, although those charges were thrown out.

Ledbetter totaled seven tackles during his freshman season and had been expected to be a serious contributor to Georgia's defense this fall. We'll see if this arrest changes any of that. 

The Tucker, Ga. native was a four-star recruit in the 2015 class. He was ranked the No. 5 player at his position and the No. 66 player overall by 247Sports' Composite Rankings
