Report: Police Investigating Alleged Drug Scandal With Georgia Tennis

Police are reportedly investigating an alleged drug scandal at Georgia.

Police are reportedly investigating an alleged drug scandal within Georgia's athletic program.

According to a report by Dawg Nation, police are investigating a case in which prescription drugs are "alleged to have been stolen and/or mishandled" by the Bulldogs' tennis teams.

Georgia's men's coach, Bo Hodge, and the women's team associate coach, Drake Bernstein, are currently suspended while their teams play in the NCAA Tournament.

From Dawg Nation:

The report released Tuesday provided few details beyond the nature of the investigation and when it started.

“On May 5 at approximately 1700 hours the UGA Police Department received a complaint related to the possible theft and mishandling of prescription involving a number of individuals within the tennis program,” police said in the incident report released Tuesday.

Diaz, the men’s tennis coach, is listed as the reporting party and the UGA Athletic Association is listed as the victim. The alleged crimes are listed as “theft by taking” of no more than $1,500 and possession of a schedule I and/or schedule II substance.”

This seems pretty bad.
