Inmate records from the Barrow County Sheriff's Office indicate that Patrick was arrested on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana less than one ounce. Bond was set at $1,030, though the offense is unspecified.

Just hours after Georgia beat Auburn in the SEC Championship Game to earn a spot in the CFP, starting linebacker Natrez Patrick was arrested.

This is Patrick's third arrest.


Patrick and Stanley were held overnight at the Barrow County detention center in Winder, Georgia. They said the officer smelled marijuana coming from their auto, and that the players attempted to throw a bag of suspected marijuana from the vehicle. He was suspended four games earlier this season after being arrested on marijuana possession charges. He was also arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge as a freshman in 2015 and suspended for one game.

In the game, Patrick totaled three tackles and a quarterback hurry. According to Georgia's student athlete handbook, a third offense for a drug related offense results in a player being kicked off the team. Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart and a team spokesman weren't immediately available for comment. The Bulldogs, who earned the No. 3 seed in the College Football Playoff rankings that were announced Sunday, will face Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl on January 1.
