Jalen Carter has been implicated in the fatal car crash that killed teammate Devin Willock and UGA recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy back in January.

The Athens-Clarke County Police Department has issued an arrest warrant for Carter, it announced on Wednesday morning. Police say they have evidence that Carter was racing the other vehicle when the fatal crash occurred.

The arrest warrant is for reckless driving and racing. Both charges are misdemeanors, according to The Athletic’s Seth Emerson.

Here’s an excerpt from the police’s statement:

The investigation found that Chandler LeCroy, driver of the 2021 Ford Expedition, and Jalen Carter, driver of a 2021 Jeep Trackhawk, were operating their vehicles in a manner consistent with racing shortly after leaving the downtown Athens area at about 2:30 a.m. The evidence demonstrated that both vehicles switched between lanes, drove in the center turn lane, drove in opposite lanes of travel, overtook other motorists and drove at high rates of speed, in an apparent attempt to outdistance each other.



Carter previously told police that he was more than 1 mile away from LeCroy’s car when the accident occurred.

Carter is a potential top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The NFL Scouting Combine is ongoing and Carter was scheduled to meet with reporters at 10:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday.
