Georgia Fans Are Attacking The Wrong Police Department On Twitter After Juwuan Briscoe's Arrest

Georgia cornerback Juwuan Briscoe was arrested Saturday night on two traffic-related offenses - for not wearing a seatbelt and not having a license. Bulldogs fans, predictably, aren't thrilled with the law enforcement agency's decision to put him behind bars. 

But some of them need to double-check just which law enforcement agency it was that made the arrest.

Briscoe was arrested by University of Georgia police and booked in the Athens-Clarke county jail. He was not arrested by the Athens-Clarke police department.

A number of UGA supporters are blasting the wrong police department on Twitter. Athens-Clarke County PD, oddly enough, is defending itself.

">@UGAfootballLive We didn't arrest him, but we probably would have. It is the law of the land: you must have a license if you want to drive.

It's not really a smart idea to put a police department on blast in the first place - but if you're going to do it, make sure you have the right one.
