Ex-UGA RB in trouble again, suspended for Week 2 game

Florida v Georgia Getty Images

Apparently, moving down a level as a result of a previous suspension hasn’t kept Washaun Ealey’s nose clean. According to the Anniston Star, Ealey, now at Jacksonville, State has been suspended for this Saturday’s game against Chattanooga after he was arrested this morning on drug possession charges.

“This is a violation of team policy,” JSU athletic director Warren Koegel said. “He’s suspended for this game against Chattanooga and we’re going thorugh the proper channels according to the policy.

“Obviously this is a concern and we’re dealing with it. He will not play.”

Per the Star, Ealey has been charged with second-degree marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. An arrest report states that Ealey was arrested by JSU police at his apartment at 7:24 this morning after his apartment was searched. The report says the police were at Ealey’s residence because of a noise complaint.

Ealey, who rushed for over 1,000 yards for the Gamecocks last season, also hurt his knee in last Saturday’s loss to Arkansas.

A senior, Ealey led Georgia in rushing during the 2009 and ’10 seasons. However, a combination of injuries and off-the-field issues resulted in his release from the program in May.

    When you say “ex-UGA RB in trouble again”, you’re going to have to be more specific.

    I actually thought this headline was going to be about someone else. Honest.

    kid will never be a Congressman, Senator or President (for either party)…..oh wait, what…they all have admitted to…..oh……well at least we keep these useless hippie/druggies from playing college football…….maybe he should start a computer company or something.

    kids who smoke weed – go to a 1AA in California. Ask for Ahh-Nold if you have a problem.

    If he doesn’t get his head out of his lower intestinal track; The next uniform he gets to wear will have stripes on it, and his jersey number will be at least 5 figures long.

    What kind of noise complaint is investigated at 7 in the morning? “The garbagemen are making too much noise?” “My neighbor is warming up his truck to go to work?”

    Sounds like the backup to Ealey got tired of waiting for his moment in the spotlight and called the cops to complain about “noise” at seven in the morning! Bogus search!
