ATHENS — Georgia basketball player J.J. Frazier was arrested overnight on two misdemeanor traffic charges, including driving on a suspended license.
Frazier, a junior, was also charged with improper driving and booked into jail at 3:03 a.m. and released 35 minutes later, according to the Athens-Clarke County jail log. Bond was set at $2,000 collectively for the two charges.
Georgia coach Mark Fox, through a team spokesman, said he was gathering facts and would address it internally.
The 5-foot-10 Frazier started 16 games last year, averaging 9.5 points per game. He was one of the team’s key contributors during its run to the NCAA tournament, and his 37-point performance at Mississippi State was the most scored by a Georgia player in a game this year.
This is the second traffic-related arrest for Frazier, who was charged last year with driving without a license after being pulled over for not obeying a stop or yield sign. He was not suspended for any games for that incident.
