ATHENS — Sanders Commings has reached an “informal resolution” with the University of Georgia in the wake of his domestic violence arrest last month.
Kris Stevens, UGA’s director of Student Conduct, confirmed that his office “reached an agreement” with the Bulldogs’ senior cornerback to be on six months probation, do 25 hours of community service, attend an alcohol education class and an anger management class.
The school conducted its own independent investigation after Commings was arrested on Jan. 21 and charged with domestic violence/simple battery. Commings was determined to have “engaged in physical abuse, physical intimidation, coercion and/or other conduct that threatened or endangered the health or safety of another person,” according to the resolution agreement, signed by Commings this past Friday. That’s a violation Regulation 3 of the school’s conduct code.
A violation of Commings’ probation, which expires Aug. 17, “will likely result in suspension from the University of Georgia,” according to the resolution. Commings must complete the terms of the agreement by April 30.
Police accused Commings of striking his girlfriend during an argument in downtown Athens. Commings is scheduled for a March 22 arraignment on those charges. Georgia coach Mark Richt has already suspended Commings for the first two games of next season.
