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.
