ATHENS — Former Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett was released from the Dallas City Detention Center on Sunday after his arrest earlier that morning on charges of public intoxication, per a Dallas television station.

Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA-TV released footage of Bennett, wearing a black hoodie and drinking a bottled water, being released and then driven away in a large black SUV.

Bennett, the Manning Award winner and a Heisman Trophy finalist, has been in the Fort Worth area near Dallas training for the NFL Draft evaluation process.

Bennett is expected to get an invitation to the NFL Combine — if he hasn’t already — to interview and perform in front of NFL franchises.

The two-time CFP Championship Game offensive MVP is considered by many a fifth-to-seventh round prospect.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. was more bullish, saying Bennett would “probably” be selected in the third round of the upcoming NFL Draft.

More NFL teams are featuring mobile quarterbacks like Bennett, who also showed a knack for timely playmaking as the Bulldogs won back-to-back national championships with wins over Alabama (33-18) and TCU (65-7).

Neither Bennett’s agents nor the University of Georgia have issued a public comment on the alleged incident at the time of this publication.
