ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt has doubled the original one-game suspension given to fullback Fred Munzenmaier following his arrest last weekend for underage possession or consumption of alcohol.

Munzenmaier, who will be a sophomore, will miss the first two games of the 2008 season against Georgia Southern and Central Michigan.

The incident report filed by Athens-Clarke County police included details of Munzenmaier's inappropriate exchange with the arresting officer.

Munzenmaier told the officer it was obvious the police have it "out for them," according to the report, and that police have a point system for athletes.

Munzenmaier later used an expletive to tell the officer to shut his mouth, according to the report.

Defensive back Donavon Baldwin also was arrested by University of Georgia police for driving under the influence of alcohol and improper driving. He was given a one-game suspension.

Munzenmaier was arrested after he was seen on an Athens street
waving his arms. According to the incident report, the officer slammed on his brakes to avoid running over him.

The officer asked Munzenmaier for his ID and noticed a strong smell of alcohol. Munzenmaier said he thought he was flagging down a taxi.
