ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia has booted defensive lineman Chauncey Rivers off the football team after a third drug-related arrest.
Rivers was already suspended for three games to start the season before his third arrest for marijuana possession on Wednesday in DeKalb County. A third violation of Georgia’s drug policy triggers a dismissal.
Rivers is facing four charges in the case, according to county online judicial records.
