Stetson Bennett, the Georgia QB who led the Bulldogs to back-to-back national championships, was arrested on Sunday morning.
Bennett was arrested on a public intoxication charge in Dallas around 6 a.m. local time, police confirmed to Fox News Digital. Officers responded to a call about a man “banging on doors” and authorities determined Bennett was intoxicated.
Bennett was taken to City Detention Center, police said. It’s unclear whether he was released. More information about his arrest was not released.
Bennett this past season, led Georgia to a 65-7 win over TCU in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Los Angeles earlier this month. He also led the Bulldogs to a national title win over Alabama the previous season.
Bennett is projected to be selected in the upcoming NFL Draft after a stellar career at Georgia. He was a walk on for the Bulldogs in 2017, before leaving for junior college and then returning on scholarship, winning back-to-back titles.
