According to Dallas Police Department, Stetson Bennett, Georgia Bulldogs quarterback was charged Sunday with public intoxication.
WFAA TV reported that the police were dispatched to Old East Dallas about an unruly man who was pounding doors on 1600 Block Tribeca Way.
Bennet, 25 years old was taken into custody at the detention centre. Officials were unable to say if Bennet had been banging on doors and when he was due to be released.
Bennet helped lead the Bulldogs to a 65-7 blowout win over TCU in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Los Angeles on Jan. .9, the Bulldogs’ second consecutive national title. He completed the season with 4,127 passing yards and 27 touchdowns.
While the University of Georgia is not making a statement about Bennet’s arrest they have stated that Bennet has been released from school. Bennet graduated in December with an economics degree.
Bennett was the offensive MVP of each of his CFP games during the previous two seasons. As a starter, he went 28-3.
Bennet’s future is still undetermined. According to ESPN, he’s talked about going to law school. However, there’s still the possibility that he could play in the NFL.
Sports reporters still believe he could be a late-round selection for the upcoming NFL Draft.
