Jamon Dumas-Johnson was a key piece for Georgia’s national championship run in 2022, but he is starting off the offseason in the worst way.
According to Seth Emerson with The Athletic, the linebacker was booked into Athens-Clarke County jail for misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing on highway/streets.
He would be released shortly after 7 pm ET.
The UGA Athletic Association put out a statement that said, “We are aware of a report relating to a January 10 incident on College Station Road involving one of our student-athletes. The alleged conduct does not reflect our program’s values or the high standards we have established. As this is an open matter involving a student, we are not able to provide any additional information at this time and will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement.”
Dumas-Johnson finished second on the Bulldogs with 70 total tackles in 2022 while adding 9 TFL, 4 sacks, 3 pass breakups and a forced fumble.
We will have to wait and see how head coach Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs address this matter moving forward.
