Tennessee is in the middle of spring break and if the news of Kenneth George Jr.’s recent arrest is accurate, the defensive back may have just earned himself a permanent vacation from Jeremy Pruitt’s program.
A reserve during his first season with the program, George was signed during Pruitt’s first Tennessee recruiting class out of Trinity Valley Community College in Texas. George is scheduled to head into his redshirt junior season in 2019 but he may have just seriously jeopardized his future on Rocky Top during a spring break trip to south Florida.
According to multiple records, George has recently arrested in Miami. Peter Burke of Local 10 News is reporting that George is facing charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence, resisting an officer without violence and disorderly conduct, as stated by the police report.
Tennessee’s SID Zach Stipe provided the following statement to Local 10 News:
“We are aware of the situation and are gathering facts as the appropriate processes run their course.”
Dade County of Miami current has George listed as an inmate, with the following charges against him: Battery against police officer/corrections/firefighter, resisting officer with violence to his person, resisting officer without violence to his person and disorderly conduct/breach of the peace.
