Over just the past few months, the Georgia Bulldogs football team has had a pattern of dangerous speeding violations, even after a fatal car crash that killed a member of the football team and a football recruiting staffer. And it happened again this weekend.
As the Athens Banner-Herald reports, Georgia Bulldogs defensive lineman Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins was cited for speeding after he was clocked going 90 miles per hour in a 70 mile-per-hour zone on Friday morning. To make matters worse for Ingram-Dawkins, he was then arrested and booked in the Clarke County Jail on a warrant for failing to appear for a previous citation in Athens.
As the Banner-Herald points out, this continues an extremely concerning pattern for the Georgia football team.
“Ingram-Dawkins’ citation marks at least the 14th time a Georgia player has been charged with speeding or racing/reckless driving since the Jan. 15 fatal crash in Athens that killed offensive lineman Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy. She had a blood alcohol level at the time of more than twice the legal limit, police said, when she was racing defensive tackle Jalen Carter,” the Banner-Herald reported.
The college football world was furious that these incidents keep happening at Georgia, even after a player was killed as a result of a speeding incident.
How does this keep happening at Georgia? https://t.co/NhlEjfe3os

At this point, I'm surprised Georgia just doesn't get every player on the roster a personal driver (they can get boosters to pay for it under NIL so you can get around the direct gifts to players prohibition). https://t.co/oi7i5R8KI8

No one on the UGA football team should be allowed to drive https://t.co/fZMsrngkKX

How have they not gotten control over this? I’m legitimately baffled this is still happening https://t.co/pyxPkxrK3k
