Richt: Former Lowndes Star Suspended For UGA-Clemson Game

| May 28, 2013

uga logoFormer Lowndes Viking and current UGA Bulldog Josh Harvey-Clemons will be suspended for one game after an incident in an Athens dorm involving marijuana.

Head coach Mark Richt confirmed that suspension on Tuesday to a Nashville, TN sports radio station. Police were called to a dorm room where Harvey-Clemons and Ty Flournoy-Smith lived after an RA smelled marijuana coming from the room.

No pot was found in the room, but the pair had admitted to smoking the drug prior to the cops’ arrival. Investigators found a digital scale and a plastic baggie, but no physical evidence of any drugs.

The UGA Athletic Association’s marijuana-use policy calls for a suspension of 10 percent of competition dates for a first-time violation, which would translate to one game.

Georgia opens the 2013 season August 31st at Clemson.

    Where is decency these days? Where has discipline took off to? It seems there are only a few good boys from our community who are chosen to play college football and represent us well. Kick this boy off the team, Coach!
