ATHENS — Georgia receiver Isaiah McKenzie released a statement through the team on Friday night apologizing for an incident this past Monday, which did not lead to any charges.
McKenzie was accused by a woman with making what were categorized as “terroristic” threats while at a Chili’s restaurant in Athens. But police who came to the scene saw no reason to make any charges. The police announced two days later that the woman elected not to press charges and thus the matter was closed.
“I want to sincerely apologize to everyone for my involvement in an incident this past Monday evening at a local restaurant,” McKenzie said in the statement. “I am relieved to have put this behind me so I can represent the Bulldog Nation at the highest levels in the classroom, in the community, and on the field.”
McKenzie, the team’s top kick and punt returner and a starting receiver, is expected to play Saturday in No. 8 Georgia’s showdown with No. 13 Alabama.
