Police have announced that Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie will not be charged over an alleged threat he made against a woman’s life. Jason Butt of The Telegraph reported the update in the case.
In the end, police stated that “the victim declined to prosecute so the case is closed.”
The case stemmed from an incident at a local Chili’s restaurant on Monday evening, at which a young lady said that McKenzie “was going to call some friends and they were going to come out and he was going to kill her.”
No arrests were made, nor were charges filed against McKenzie or his Georgia teammates that were witnesses. Those teammates were Dominick Sanders, Jarvis Wilson, Terry Godwin and D’Andre Walker.
This means that McKenzie, who attended practice yesterday, can now focus on his team’s biggest game of the season thus far. The ever-dangerous Alabama Crimson Tide come to Athens on Saturday afternoon, and this game could make or break No. 8 Georgia’s hopes of making the College Football Playoff.
A receiver who is a punt return specialist, McKenzie has five catches for 89 yards and has 116 punt return yards with a touchdown.
Kickoff between Georgia and Alabama is slated for 3:30 p.m. on CBS.
