Stetson Bennett, Georgia standout quarterback, arrested on public intoxication charge

Jan 30, 2023

Stetson Bennett, the Georgia quarterback who led the Bulldogs to back-to-back national championships and became one of the best stories in college football, was arrested on Sunday morning.

Bennett was arrested on a public intoxication charge in Dallas around 6 a.m. local time, police confirmed to Fox News Digital. Officers responded to a call about a man "banging on doors" and authorities determined Bennett was intoxicated.

Bennett, 25, was taken to City Detention Center, police said. It’s unclear whether he was released.

The quarterback became a hero for the Bulldogs after leading the team to a blowout victory over TCU in the national championship earlier this month. Georgia coach Kirby Smart gave time for Bennett to get a curtain call in the fourth quarter as they led 52-7.
