Patrick was released on $1,030 bond Sunday, according to court records obtained by ESPN. He was in a vehicle with fellow teammate and wide receiver Jayson Stanley. Patrick, a passenger with Stanley driving, has only been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession, but he could be in for something of a real punishment. We're still awaiting word from Georgia on these arrests. He also bonded out, Smith said.

According to UGASports.com, the school's student-athlete handbook calls for dismissal from the team after a third drug-related offense.

Patrick and Stanley were held overnight at the Barrow County detention center in Winder, Georgia. Patrick was arrested in October on another marijuana charge.

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested on misdemeanor marijuana charge, his second of the season and third of his career, hours after starting in the Bulldogs' Southeastern Conference championship game win over Auburn.

A little over five hours after that game, one starter on that team would find himself in the back of a squad vehicle. He was part of Georgia's 28-7 victory over Auburn in the SEC Championship on Saturday. Patrick played in a combined 21 games in 2015 and 2016, including 11 starts, and totaled 81 tackles.
