UGA puts another football player on probation

ATHENS – Another recently arrested Georgia football player has been placed on probation by the university for a violation of student conduct regulations.

Freshman safety Alec Ogletree admitted to the violation by signing an informal resolution agreement with UGA’s Office of Judicial Programs on Wednesday, according to a university document obtained by the AJC today under an open-records request.

The agreement states that Ogletree “had in his possession without authorization a helmet belonging to another person.” The agreement  calls for Ogletree to be on university probation until May 10, 2011, and to complete 20 hours of community service.

As previously reported, Ogletree was arrested on a misdemeanor theft-by-taking charge last month in connection with a June incident in which a motor-scooter helmet, valued at $35, allegedly was taken from outside a campus building.

Three other Georgia football players with recent arrests previously were placed on probation and/or reprimanded by the university. Click here for that story.
