Georgia Running Back Isaiah Crowell Arrested On Weapons Charges [UPDATE: Four Other Georgia Players With Him, But Were Released]

Isaiah Crowell, the number 1 rated prospect at running back two years ago, was arrested overnight on multiple charges related to weapons possession, including carrying a concealed weapon and possessing a weapon in a school zone. He was booked at 3:37 a.m. and had his bond set at $7,500.

Last year, Crowell rushed for 850 yards as a freshman at Georgia. He was suspended by head coach Mark Richt for the New Mexico State game last year, and also was benched for the first quarter of the Vanderbilt game.

UPDATE: According to Fletcher Page, four other players, Josh Harvey-Clemons, Blake Tibbs, Quintavious Harrow, and Sheldon Dawson, were with Crowell in the vehicle at the time of the arrest but were released. Harvey-Clemons, you might recall, was a top linebacker recruit this offseason who was recruited by Richt attending his church. Crowell denied knowing about the gun in his vehicle, which was found under the driver’s seat.
