Details emerge from Georgia freshman DE Bill Norton's weekend arrest; Kirby Smart comments
This past Sunday, Georgia freshman DE Bill Norton was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, failure to maintain lane/improper driving on road and possessing any alcoholic beverage under age 21.
Details of that arrest have now emerged.
Police pulled over Norton after witnessing the vehicle he was driving go fully over double-yellow line into oncoming traffic, according to an AJC.com report. Subsequently, field sobriety tests were administered and Norton was taken into custody. Norton was booked into Athens-Clarke County jail at 4:25 a.m. on the above charges. He was released on $3,000 bond shortly thereafter.
Per AJC.com, coach Kirby Smart commented on Norton’s arrest on Monday:
Smart said Monday he was “very disappointed” in Norton’s “unacceptable behavior” and that the 6-foot-6, 285-pound defensive end would be “punished accordingly.”
Norton is the latest Bulldog to run in trouble with the law this offseason, making it seven in total.
