Stetson Bennett, who led the University of Georgia Bulldogs to back-to-back national titles, was arrested early Sunday morning in Dallas, Texas for public intoxication, according to multiple reports.
Police informed WFAA-TV that the arrest occurred at 6:00 a.m. on Sunday in the historic Old East Dallas neighborhood after responding to a call about a guy banging on doors. When they arrived, they discovered Bennett and “determined that he was drunk.”
Bennett was subsequently sent to a local jail facility. It is unknown whether he has been released.
Bennett, who is 25 years old, led Georgia to national titles at the conclusion of the 2021 and 2022 seasons, including a 65-7 victory against TCU earlier this month.
Before the 2017 season, he began as a walk-on at Georgia, but ultimately transferred to a junior college. He subsequently transferred back in 2019 after being granted a scholarship, and he received his first opportunity to start in 2021, a responsibility he refused to abandon.
Bennett will join the 2023 NFL Draft, and ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. projects that he will be selected in the third round.
