Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with felony aggravated assault. It was his second arrest of the offseason.

According to the Athens Banner-Herald, police determined that Taylor was the "primary aggressor" in a domestic violence incident at McWhorter Hall on Georgia's campus.

Taylor was booked into the Clarke County Jail at 6:08 a.m. ET, according to its online booking report. He will have to go before a judge, who will determine his bond.

In March, Taylor was among four Georgia players arrested and charged with theft by deception. Tray Matthews also was arrested and later dismissed from the team after a classroom incident, leaving Taylor's status with the team in question.

"We are trying to make room for guys who want to do things right," coach Mark Richt said after dismissing Matthews.

Taylor appeared in 10 games last season as a redshirt sophomore and recorded nine tackles. He is listed third on the team's depth chart at nose tackle. Coming out of high school, he was the No. 53 overall prospect in the ESPN 150.
