UGA baseball player arrested
ATHENS, Ga. -- A freshman outfielder and pitcher for the University of Georgia baseball team has been arrested on charges of public intoxication and underage possession of alcohol.
Jail records show Kyle Clark was being held Monday in the Athens-Clarke County Jail. It was not known whether he had a lawyer.
Christopher Lakos, a UGA athletics department spokesman, said coach David Perno "is aware of the situation with Kyle, and he's looking in to the matter."
The Athens Banner-Herald reported Georgia Athletic Association guidelines involving alcohol violations would require Clark to be suspended for 10 percent of the regular season, which begins Feb. 13 at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro.
