Georgia DE dismissed from team

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia linebacker Montez Robinson has been

dismissed from the team after an arrest on a misdemeanor charge of

simple battery/family violence.

The Clarke County Sheriff's Department says Robinson turned

himself in Sunday on a warrant issued Saturday. Officials at the

jail said he would likely have a bond hearing on Monday and they

could release no further information about the case.

UGA head coach Mark Richt released a statement Sunday saying

Robinson was removed from the team because he did not meet

"stipulations that were placed on him as a result of previous

off-field issues."

Robinson was suspended in December after an arrest on charges

involving altercations with a female student.

The freshman from Avon, Ind., played as a backup last season.
