    RB Isaiah Crowell Dismissed From UGA Football After Arrest For Gun Possession

    ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell, who was in and out of Bulldogs coach Mark Richt's doghouse as a freshman, was dismissed from the team Friday after being arrested on weapons charges by Athens-Clarke County police overnight.

    Crowell, from Columbus, Ga., was arrested and charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor, according to the Athens-Clarke County Jail Booking report.

    Crowell, 19, was charged with a felony count of possessing a weapon in a school zone, a felony count of altered identification mark and misdemeanor count of possession/carrying a concealed weapon.

    He was arrested around 2:20 a.m. ET after being stopped at a vehicle checkpoint near the Georgia campus and booked at 3:37 a.m.

    Crowell was dismissed from the team in the late afternoon.

    "We have a dedicated and committed group of men who are working hard to prepare for the coming season," Richt said in a news release. "Our total focus will be directed toward the team and this effort."

    Crowell was released from Athens-Clarke County Jail at 12:44 p.m. on $9,500 bond.

    According to a police report issued Friday, the serial number on a 9-millimeter Luger found under the driver's seat had been scratched off completely, but Crowell denied knowing a gun was there, saying other people drive his car.

    Police said the altered ID-mark charge stems from the tampered serial number.

    Crowell could face a fine of up to $10,000 and a jail sentence between two and 10 years if found guilty of weapons possession on school property, while a guilty verdict for criminal use of an article with an altered ID mark carries a sentence between one and five years.

    Crowell also said teammates Blake Tibbs, Quintavius Harrow, Josh Harvey-Clemons and Sheldon Dawson, who were passengers in the car, had just left a club called Aftermath, according to the police report.

    "[Crowell] consented to a search of the vehicle, and officers didn't find the marijuana," Athens-Clarke County Police spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow told ESPN.com on Friday morning. "There were other occupants inside the car and they consented to a search, but the marijuana wasn't found. During the search of the vehicle, officers found a gun under the driver's seat. After discovering that the ID number had been altered [on the gun], Mr. Crowell was arrested and charged. Marijuana was never found inside the car."

    Crowell, who was ranked as the country's No. 1 running back and No. 4 prospect overall by ESPN Recruiting in 2011, had a rocky first season with the Bulldogs.

    not that huge of a blow for UGA considering they just brought in some of the top RB prospects in the nation, but still, crowell is another in a long line of student-athletes who likely pissed away a potential NFL career due to his stupidity and immaturity.

    Keith Marshall could be really good. Incredible speed to go along with decent size, so Georgia is fortunate to have him waiting in the wings.

    As for Crowell, it is pretty sad that he has made these decisions. He's a very talented player, and hopefully he figures it out and lands on his feet somewhere else.

    I think Todd Gurley might be the guy people talk about at RB for Georgia in a few years.

    4th straight starting TB who fell off. Knowshon, Caleb King, Washaun Ealy and now this.

    Richt knew what he was getting into, but there was A LOT of pressure on him to keep Crowell away from Alabama.

    I saw this on a few CFB fan sites. Not sure it's even real but it's pretty funny. The first part is one of Crowell's teammates on Facebook and the rest is some UGA fan's response.

    Teammate Cornelius Washington's comments on facebook earlier re: Crowell's troubles and subsequent dismissal:
    "'all(of you) think you know so much, but in reality you know nothing. You don't know what we come from, you don't know our struggles, all you know is the number on our jersies. 99% of you don't give a crap about us outside of football. When we're doing well you're all in our faces, when things get tough and we need encouragement you're nowhere to be found.
    You're fake and I despise you for it. We shall band together guys, we've been working hard and we only need each other. NONE of those outsiders
    will contribute to our survival as a team or as individuals, you can guarantee that.#stickclosetoeachother ~corn washington"

    OK Mr. Corn, I'll bite, what oppressive circumstance that none of us can
    possibly understand are you referencing? Are you suggesting that none of
    us come from families that struggled to make ends meet? Maybe none of
    us were raised by a single parent? Perhaps some of us didn't eat grilled
    cheese sandwiches, cheap hot dogs (with no bun), ramen noodles, or
    fishsticks for dinner AS A TREAT because we came from an era of economic
    recession that makes today's seem tame?

    Let me tell you something you shortsighted little moron, poor when I was a kid meant
    something entirely different than it does now.. and we had it good
    compared to our parents and grandparents who survived on hope, sunshine,
    and tap water...

    When I was a kid, I didn't have a video game system, the TV in the LIVING ROOM was 19 inches of black & white goodness and it got 4 channels; two of them without adjusting the rabbit
    ears every few minutes, and one of those channels was PBS - so Sesame
    Street & Mr. Rogers all freaking day. This TV was shared by 4
    people, you dig? Hell, I woke up everyday wondering if Russia was going
    to nuke our ***** for no apparent reason or if I might spontaneously
    explode if I didn't wear a condom during sex...

    I grew up listening to Georgia football on the radio - A.M. RADIO! We were lucky
    if 4 games were televised a year. I never missed a second of ANY game. I
    would sit in a 120 degree car until the final whistle if need be. We
    had one telephone, with a cord and it was a rotary that I had to ask
    permission to use. I ate in a restaurant 4 or 5 times a year and wore
    clothes til they either fell off or I outgrew them. We had 2 window
    units in our house and I didn't own a car until I was a senior in high
    school - guess who bought it and insured it? Crime was high and if we
    wanted to go somewhere during the day, we walked - often many, many
    miles. When I started looking for a job, it took 47 applications before I
    finally got one - at McDonalds, making $3.35/hour.

    I attended ****ty Georgia Public schools that were UN-air-conditioned (you may find
    it hard to believe, but it actually used to get hot back in the 70s and
    80s... who knew?) I played high school football in the era where
    coaches only let us drink water once per practice, before there were
    limitations on when we could start practicing each year, so we practiced
    all summer if we wanted to start. My helmet had straps inside, not pads
    - and spearing, clothesline tackles, horse collar tackles, head slaps,
    and taking cheap shots @ wide recievers & quarterbacks was not only
    legal, but expected... I've never run a 4.4, never benched 500 lbs and
    never been visited by a college coach. I paid my own way to college and
    worked at Pizza Hut wearing brown polyester for 40 hours a week while
    attending a full load of classes.

    My family is full of nuts, my neighborhood kind of sucked, and so did my prospects. I would have
    killed to have worn the red & black, just to run onto the field and
    stand on the GOD DAMN SIDELINE - ONCE. When I screwed up and got a DUI,
    no one came to bail me out, I went to court alone, paid my fine, did my
    community service and dealt with it. It sucked, but I figured I learned
    that was probably something I shouldn't do again... So that I could
    afford my DUI fine, I went without electricity and and gas for a summer,
    which meant the only 2 things that worked in my house were the door
    lock and the toilet... I ate white bread and canned mushrooms for many
    weeks in a row because that's what the gas station on the corner had.
    When I was feeling fancy, I'd buy eggs or *gasp* Chef Boyardee
    Ravioli...

    So now, here we are.. one of your poor downtrodden
    teammates has suffered unjustly from some heretofor unknown boogey man
    that clearly has stacked the deck against him. Nevermind that 3/4s of
    the state would have loaned him their car and put him up for the night
    after he decided to stay in state and play for dear old UGA. Nevermind
    that 65% of the state forgave him the 1st 4 or 5 times he failed a drug
    test, acted like a petulant little ***** about school or classwork, came
    out of every game that an opponent busted him in his little ***** assed
    mouth, and generally acted like a little dreadlocked flower with all of
    the toughness of a three legged kitten, possessing the smarts of a
    window licking ****** with water on the brain...

    So now he's taken to driving around with the next generation of UGA players with a
    gun that apparently isn't his and lo & behold, the serial number has
    been removed ( a Federal Offense that carries a penalty of 2-10 year in
    the joint). But it's clearly not his fault, I mean.. how could it be,
    he's been a model citizen since he left Columbus and arrived on the big
    stage. Every gesture, every nuance would lead the dispassionate
    bystander to the opinion that this just COULDN'T POSSIBLY be IC1's gun!

    Whatthe **** is the matter with you morons? I was around when Frank Ros and
    the boys stole a pig before the 1980 season.. I was aware of the entire
    defense getting suspended before playing Miami of Ohio in the Tangerine
    Bowl ( a game I watched on that black & white TV - we lost as a
    result in spite of being heavily favored), hell I even vaaaguely
    remember some of the expoilts of Jake Scott... Every one of those guys
    was punished in some way that made them want to die & then they
    contritely returned to the team, better men for it. (Well, except for
    Scott who told Dooley to **** off and went to play in Canada before
    becoming a Super Bowl MVP eventually.. but he didn't whine like a
    freaking ***** that nobody understood **sniff**, **sob**, and besides,
    I'm pretty sure Jake Scott could kill any one of you just by yelling).

    How did your boy IC1 fare after his 6 or 7 chances? Your little boy brains
    need to catch up to your full grown man bodies before you find
    yourselves hanging off the back of a trash collection truck IF YOU'RE
    LUCKY! You're blessed with health, superior athletic ability, and keen
    minds.. every advantage possible. Free school, a huge support system,
    the adulation of fans everywhere.. and somehow, we just don't
    understand? Understand what, that you're a freaking moron? That some of
    you waste these gifts and then whine like a ***** because instead of
    giving you a 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th chance we dare wonder what'n the hell
    is the matter with you?

    I suppose instead I should EXPECT YOU TO FAIL? Then I would understand, right? Are you idiots eating lead paint sandwiches between all the bong hits you're apparently doing? Be a
    freaking man and own up to your situation. It's not everyone else's
    fault, the quicker that takes root in your addled brain the better. Take
    the gifts that are given you - the OBVIOUS advantages the wheel of
    fortune has allowed you to enjoy and make something out of yourself.. or
    disappear into oblivion (preferably quietly, lest we think you are an
    even bigger idiot than you have led us to believe already).

    I hope your dad is en route to Athens to kick you in the *** (because I
    doubt our candy- assed coach will), you need it ... Your Pal, Bobby

    i always laugh when celebs get pissy about fan backlash (especially when it's well deserved, as in this case). take the bad with the good, for crissake! you CHOSE this path, and all the good AND bad that comes with it. you get tons of adulation, doors opened for you in almost every avenue of life, and perks galore. on the flip side, you have the microscope on you at all times. thems the breaks. don't like it, don't put yourself in the public eye and reap the benefits (while criticizing the consequences).
