According to Emerson’s report, Athens-Clarke County Police arrested and charged Rosemy-Jacksaint on the two charges, which were ruled as misdemeanors. The report said he was released after posting bail one hour after his booking.
Four Georgia team players have been charged with reckless driving and speeding over the past few months. Rosemy-Jacksaint, fellow receiver De’Nylon Morrissette, linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson, and most notably, Jalen Carter were among those who have been tagged for speeding and reckless driving charges.
What makes it worse is that the Georgia program suffered a loss due to these issues. Staffer Chandler LeCroy and player Devin Wilock crashed and died in a street race that Carter allegedly participated in.
Considering the growing issue, it seems that head coach Kirby Smart and the program might need to call for some kind of intervention. That this has swelled and continued isn’t great, and those participating are playing a considerably dangerous game considering the situation. It’s not always black and white and easy to figure out, but calming down feels imperative here.
