ATHENS – Georgia cornerback Vance Cuff was arrested Tuesday by the Athens Police Department on charges of driving on a suspended license and "emerging from an alley." He was released on $400 bond.
The incident occurred, according to a statement released by the school, when Cuff left the Butts-Mehre Building on his scooter. He made a left and drove down Rutherford Street, which is currently closed during construction. When he was stopped for driving down the closed road, it was discovered that his license was suspended.
Head coach Mark Richt said Cuff will serve a one-game suspension.
"He used poor judgment first in the route he took and also for being on the scooter at all with a suspended license," Richt said. "He will be suspended for the Vanderbilt game."
The junior from Colquitt County has appeared in three games this season but sprained a ligament in his knee against Arkansas and has been limited since. He was expected to return to full practices this week and play a more significant role against the Commodores this week.
