ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith is free on bond after being arrested on a misdemeanor charge accusing him of lying about the theft of his textbooks.

Campus police Chief Jimmy Williamson said Sunday that Flournoy-Smith reported his textbooks stolen a few days ago. Police investigated and said they found the player had sold them to a local bookstore. Williamson said police obtained a warrant for filing a false police report, notified Flournoy-Smith, and he turned himself in Friday night. He was released early Saturday on $1,000 bond.

Court records don't indicate whether he has an attorney. The charge carries a maximum fine of $1,000 and up to a year in jail.

Flournoy-Smith, a standout at Colquitt County High School in Moultrie, Ga., played in eight games in his freshman season.
