Richt suspends two players following arrests

Georgia coach Mark Richt has suspended two

players the day after their arrests on alcohol-related charges.

Sophomore tailback Dontavius Jackson was charged with driving

under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident and other

motor vehicle offenses early Saturday morning. Richt says Jackson,

a backup, has been suspended for a minimum of six games.

Sophomore split end Tavarres King, a returning starter, was

charged with under aged possession of alcohol and has been suspended

for at least one game by Richt.

Richt says he is disappointed in the players' decision-making

and that each will "pay a stiff price."

Each player has been suspended indefinitely from all team
