Police report out on Evans' arrest
By Chris Low
The police report is out on the DUI arrest of Georgia athletic director Damon Evans, and I doubt very seriously that it's going to help his fight to keep his job.
According to the report, Evans tried to bargain with the arresting officer and said, "I am not trying to bribe you, but is there anything you can do without arresting me?"
Even more embarrassing for Evans was the part in the report about the officer finding a red pair of women's panties between Evan's legs. The other passenger in the car, 28-year-old Courtney Fuhrmann, was also arrested for disorderly conduct. Evans told the officer that Fuhrmann was nothing more than a friend, according to the report. But the officer said that Fuhrmann later told him that the two had been seeing each other for "only a week or so."
"Just to let you know, it will be erased because he is the athletic director of UGA and he has that power," Fuhrmann told the officer, according to the report.
