Accusation Against Players Unfounded

ATHENS – No Georgia football players will be charged in relation to an altercation in a taxi last week, according to a release from Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

A report surfaced last week that four black men harassed three other passengers in a cab on March 28, making suggestive sexual comments and physically assaulting two of the passengers. In the original police report, one witness said he believed at least one of the accused men to be a Georgia football player.

As it turned out, one player was involved, according to police, but he played the role of peacemaker in the incident and will not face any charges. The other three men were residents of Heard County, according to the release. Warrants are currently pending for the other men.

The name of the lone football player involved was not released.
