Kirby Smart Confirms Jonathan Ledbetter Will Be Suspended After DUI Arrest

The suspension comes after Ledbetter's second alcohol-related arrest.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart chomped at the bit before Tuesday's SEC Media Days session and announced that Ledbetter will be suspendedHeading into media days, questions loomed about defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter's status heading into the season.

Just days before the media headed to Hoover, Ala., Ledbetter was arrested on DUI charges after falling asleep at the wheel at a busy intersection and blowing a .138 BAC. This is Ledbetter's second alcohol-related arrest since March when he was arrested for underage possession of alcohol and possession of false identification outside of one of Athens, Ga.'s many downtown bars.

Smart didn't say how long Ledbetter would be suspended, but Georgia policy is usually a two-game suspension. 

Ledbetter's most recent arrest is the seventh player arrest he's had to address since taking on his role.
