Georgian Stetson Bennett arrested in Texas for public intoxication

DALLAS (AP) — Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett, who led the Bulldogs to their second straight national championship, was arrested early Sunday after police said he was intoxicated and he knocked on doors.

Bennett, 25, was charged with public intoxication and taken to the city’s detention center, Dallas police said.

Police said around 6:10 a.m. officers responded to reports of a man knocking on doors. The location reported by police was a townhouse community near downtown Dallas.

Last week, Bennett told reporters he would be training for his professional career in Fort Worth, Texas, about 30 miles west of Dallas.

It was unclear whether he had been released from the detention center. An attempt by the Associated Press to reach someone at the detention center failed.

Earlier this month, Bennett threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores in the first half as No. 1 Georgia demolished No. 3 TCU 65-7 to win the National Playoff Championship. college football.

Bennett came to Georgia nearly six years ago at the start of its growth to become the most dominant program in college football.

The University of Georgia athletics department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
