Bodycam video has now been released that shows Georgia star and top draft prospect Jalen Carter talking with police after the January car crash that killed Georgia teammate Devin Willock and a team staffer Chandler LeCroy in Athens, Ga.
“Were you racing to Waffle House?” an officer asked. “Because I can tell you right now by looking at the damage on that car they were moving.”“I wasn’t racing,” Carter said.
Carter, who later pled no contest to misdemeanor racing and reckless driving charges, will not face jail time as part of his plea deal.
The 21-year-old Carter was given 12 months probation, a $1,000 fine, 80 hours of community service, and has to complete a state-approved defensive driving course.
The impact on Carter’s draft stock remains to be seen. o make matters worse for him, he reportedly struggled at his Pro Day workout.
