ATHENS — Former Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett was arrested Sunday morning in Dallas on charges of public intoxication, per Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA-TV.
Bennett, 25, had been training in Fort Worth last week, according to DawgNation sources, leading up to the alleged event.
Per the report, police officers responded to reports of a man banging on doors in the Old East Dallas area.
The officers arrived on the scene and found Bennett “and determined he was intoxicated.”'
The Dallas station reported that, “the (police) release did not say if Bennett was the man reportedly banging on doors, and it did not say where, specifically, they located him.”
Bennett, however, was taken to the Dallas City Detention Center after being arrested just after 6 a.m. (central) on Sunday.
There was not an update on when Bennett would be released on Sunday.
Bennett, the Manning Award winner, recently passed on an opportunity to compete in the Senior Bowl all-star practices and game, which take place this week in Mobile, Ala.
The draft stock of the outgoing Bulldogs’ quarterback has been widely discussed, with most projecting him as anywhere from a fifth round-selection to free agent.
Bennett is also expected to receive his bachelor’s degree this spring, per a prior UGA release.
Bennett made more than $1 million in NIL deals this past season and has maintained a marketing agent in addition to a contract agency in anticipation of a possible NFL career.
The Offensive MVP in Georgia’s CFP Championship Game wins over Alabama and TCU, Bennett is also expected to receive an invitation to the NFL Combine.
