The offseason struggle is real for Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs. One night before spring football was scheduled to start, four players were arrested and booked into the Clark County Jail. According to the Athens Banner-Hearld, safety Tray Matthews, wide receiver Uriah LeMay and defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoach are facing multiple charges of theft by deception.

University of Georgia police allege that the 11 student tuition checks were drawn from the UGA Athletic Association account and were presented for deposit or cashed twice, according to a UGA police incident report. The players were essentially “double-dipping,” in the words of UGA police chief Jimmy Williamson.

The checks were each in the amount of $71.50 and the total loss is valued at $786.60.

With the individual value of each check being less than $500, LeMay faces four misdemeanor charges, Matthews three, and Taylor and DeLoach two. The four have all been released on bond.

Richt, who has had more than enough offseason issues to deal with over the course of his Georgia career, stated the following on Tuesday morning, “I’m aware of the situation and it will be handled in an appropriate way.”
