Police report: Ealey was driving teammate Hamilton’s car

From AJC correspondent Andy Johnston in Athens:

Georgia running back Washaun Ealey was driving teammate Jakar Hamilton’s car when he hit a UGA Parking Services pickup truck in the East Campus Parking Deck at 3:19 a.m. Friday, according to the incident report obtained from UGA Police today.

Ealey was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Impala owned by Margaret Hamilton when he hit a 2008 Ford Ranger owned by the university. According to the report, three Parking Services employees confronted Ealey at the time of the incident, but he left the scene before police could arrive.

The police determined the car belonged to Hamilton and arrested Ealey. He was charged with hit-and-run of a parked vehicle and driving on a suspended license. Ealey was released Friday morning.

Ealey, Georgia’s leading rusher with 717 yards as a freshman in 2009, has been suspended one game. Hamilton is a junior defensive back.

Nothing below a 3 game suspension will stop these bums from breaking the law. Practice what you preach richt and do what’s right.

Pat May 20 Ealy ticketed for speeding and no tag. July 13th missed court date to show proof of tag, insurance, and pay speeding fine. Ealy didn’t show to court. I am the next Hershel. I don’t get no Ticket or Fine. Don’t you cops know who I am? Aug. 13th warrent issued for failure to appear & license suspended. Aug 27th out all night and hit-n-run on a State vehicle (had to hide the pot, take a shower to wash off the smell, and change clothes) in his roommates car after he was told by coaches not to drive and he said he wouldn’t. The kid doesn’t fear the police or the coaches, but he just has to miss a game against a high school team. I said it before and I will say it again. Don’t punish Ealey. Let all the starters play the sirst series on both O and D. then make the players walk to the showers. Have them change in to street clothes and sit in the stands. Let only redshirt freshmen, walk-ons, and scout team players play the rest of the game against La. Laf. If that doesn’t make to good players get the bad players in-line nothing ever will. It worked in the Military.

If the Georgia Bashers (like still at the bar) are right, what was Ealey doing driving a 2004 Chevy Impala and having to borrow it from his roomate. Shouldn’t he be driving one of the $75,000 sports cars that they all get?

that deck is designed tight, with not much space to manuever, and the UGA trucks think they can park wherever they want. it’s so easy to bump another car in that deck and it happens all the time (my daughters car has more than a few dings from that deck). big thing was not paying his speeding ticket. that said my son is a 20 year old div. 1 athlete at a Georgia public university and if his licsense gets suspended for not paying a speeding ticket, and he gets arrested, it will be MY fault for not taking care of him, even though he is a not a minor, he is a student, and is my dependant.

I-Dog Jan Kemp & Hershel with his Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am stopped uga giving out cars.
Pat you do know there were 8 Reported Rapes at uga in 2 months just before the students reported to school. The 8th rape was called a lie and the girl was charged with giving false reports and under age drinking. The other 7 were what are cal aquaintance rapes. The girls knew the male student that raped them.
ecv. a 2004 Impala is the lil Impala not the old cop car. If he can’t drive that then he needs a SMART car. Wait, a uga player in a smart car that is a joke writing itself.

Genius, Chad. A three game suspension for a traffic violation that did not involve alcohol or injury to another person. Certainly what, Ealey did was unwise and deserves stern punishment, but I don’t think it rises to the level of hitting your girlfriend in an argument over rent money (which I believe a player for an unnamed rival did and received a suspension for ONE GAME!).

Still the bar is showing no class by claiming things against Ealey that did not happen. Hiding behind a screen name to libel a kid just because he goes to a rival college shows absolutely no class. I support my DAWGS but I don’t go around making up things about other players and posting them on their blogs. Coach Richt will punish appropriately.

AltamahaDawg

Richt has kicked off when it was required, suspended for multigame when it was required, and suspended for one game when required for relatively minor things (which a few years ago was unheard of). Stop all the childish post about what he “should” have done already. You wouldn’t nor does anybody else.

I don’t uga fans saying stay off uga blogs when they are on Tech blogs. I have no problem with you being on a Tech blog but don’t give Tech people crap for doing the samething. signed Slippery when wet 5150 and all the other TECH fans. I think fair is fair. My issue is I think we should have to be registered and only use 1 name so the name hi-jacking can stop.There are people that play bothside of the FAN of another team thing just to get a rise out of people.

Dbalcer I didn’t say that is why Ealey ran I am saying it is possible like the dawgs say HALL beat his girlfriend, but the charges were dropped and reduced. Did Ealey run because he knew he had a suspended license? Then he didn’t listen to the courts or his coaches. He DISed all people in authority because he thought he was better than the average person. If like people say and there was no damage to either car WHY did Ealey run? No Drugs or Alcohol then why run and not be arrested until almost 4 hours later? Why was he out at that time? I am sure he was just spening time in the LAB to finish his classworrk when the LAB was available. Right?

@thebar, you obviously haven’t been a parent yet of a college age kid. How is Washaun supposed to pay a speeding ticket? He is a student athlete, not much income in that gig. You can argue he shouldn’t have been speeding in the first place, but once it happens a kid needs help with that. If he were a marine he would have a salary and could pay his ticket, but he’s not so he couldn’t. I’m looking to maybe adopt in the next couple of years a needy deserving kid, make a difference in someones life, but I don’t think you would work, already too much damage there.

Fortunately, there are several web browsers that have spell check features built in for people like you. Unfortunately, it appears that you are not tech-savvy either. Either way, your posts are painful to read and all of your points are pretty much voided by your failure to put together a complete thought. Take a lap and write a post worth reading.

ALT Richt knows the answer as to why the arrest are happening. Weatherall at FSU knew the reason it was happening too. Richt can hold is Bible all he wants but the needs to read the Old Testement and bring down some Bire 7 Brimestone on the punks he recruits. How long do you think it will take for LeMay to get in trouble? How long do you think it would have taken Da’Rick to get in trouble if he was in Athens? Richt is weak.
UGA needs the Marine D.I. from Full Metal Jacket nd Discovery Channel’s Locked and Loaded.
McGarity will move in slow because he knows LEEBURN’s Alcohol money RUNS this ATHENS and Adams sold his Church of Christ morals to Leeburn too.
