Georgia Bulldogs junior guard J.J. Frazier was arrested last night on two misdemeanor traffic charges, including driving with a suspended license, and was released a half hour after his booking on $2,000 bond. Seth Emerson of Dawg Nation, part of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reported Frazier’s arrest.
Frazier was also charged with “improper driving” and given how this is not his first time getting in traffic trouble, he could be facing a team suspension. Frazier was caught driving without a license last year after he was pulled over for not obeying a stop sign, and the fact that he was actually arrested and booked into the county jail this time around won’t help his cause.
If that’s the case, Georgia could potentially be without a player set to break out in the 2015-16 season, at least for a short amount of time. Frazier averaged 9.5 points and 3.3 assists per game last season, the highlight of his year being a 37-point performance against Mississippi State in January. His performance all season long helped the Bulldogs make the NCAA Tournament as a No. 10 seed, and the team lost to No. 7 Michigan in the Round of 64.
