Here’s the report from the AJC detailing the incident:
According to police records, UGA Police officer Matt Browning was dispatched to the dormitory at 10:41 p.m., Wednesday. The officer traced the smell on the first floor of the dorm to Scott-Wesley’s room. After Scott-Wesley was confronted, he grudgingly gave consent to search his room and glass pipe and marijuana “grinder” were located in a desk drawer. No significant quantities of marijuana were found but the residue in the grinder resulted in the possession charges, according to the report.
However, an arrest warrant was not issued until Thursday morning. Scott-Wesley turned himself in to the Athens-Clarke County Jail at 4:19 p.m. on Thursday and released three hours later on a total $4,000 in bond. He was booked under his given name of Justin Bernard Wesley.
Scott-Wesley’s arrest is similar to that of Josh Harvey-Clemons, who was suspended for the first game of the season.
