UGA Basketball Player Arrested on Traffic-Related Offense

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 31, 2014 | 0 Comments

University of Georgia basketball player J.J. Frazier was arrested Sunday night,  March 24th for minor traffic-related charges.

According to the AJC, Frazier, a freshman point guard, was stopped by Athens-Clarke County police for running a stop sign.  When police asked for his driver's license, they discovered Frazier did not have a valid license.  Georgia law required that he be arrested and he was taken to the Athens-Clarke County jail.  He was later released on a $1000 bond.

UGA's basketball season ended Sunday with a loss (79-71) to Louisiana Tech in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament, with Frazier being the lead scorer of the game with fifteen points.  He had an average of 3.7 points by playing in 30 of 33 games this season.

There will be no discipline from the university regarding the arrest as UGA does not normally suspend players for minor traffic-related offenses.
