ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Two Georgia players were suspended for the
team's season-opening game against Georgia Southern following their
arrests on alcohol-related charges.
Defensive back Donavon Baldwin and fullback Fred Munzenmaier
were booked into the Clarke County Jail early tody.
Both backup players were given a minimum one-game suspension. In
addition to missing the August 30th game against Georgia Southern,
the two will be assigned community service and also will have
internal discipline.
Baldwin, who will be a junior in 2008, was arrested by
University of Georgia police for driving under the influence of
alcohol and improper driving.
Munzenmaier, a sophomore, was arrested by Athens-Clarke County
police for underage possession or consumption of alcohol and
pedestrian walking on the road.
Coach Mark Richt said, "They know better, and I'm disappointed
in both of them. They will have to pay a price, but it's
unfortunate the rest of the team will also have to suffer for their
poor judgment."
