Report: Thompson Hospitalized

ATHENS - UGA DL Trent Thompson has withdrawn from classes at UGA for the spring semester.

Trent Thompson is withdrawing from classes at UGA for the semester according to a release from UGA.

"Based upon recent events, Trenton Thompson's family has authorized UGAAA to release the following information. Trenton has been dealing with a significant medical issue which required emergency hospitalization and extended hospital stay. Trenton was recently discharged from the hospital and remains under close medical care. With respect to last night’s incident, the physical appearance and behavior described in the UGA PD report is solely related to an adverse reaction to medications prescribed specifically for his medical condition. The adverse reaction required emergency transport to Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released. Toxicology tests performed at the hospital were negative for OxyContin. We cannot release any further information at this time due to federal privacy laws.  Due to the medical issues, Trenton is withdrawing from classes this semester, and his family requests privacy during this time."

In what is an apparently unrelated event, Thompson was upset with the departure of former UGA DL coach Tracy Rocker. Read more about that situation in What We Are Hearing, which was published on Wednesday.
