Matt Stagg LB Georgia

CURTIS COMPTON

The Georgia Bulldogs are sitting at 9-1 right now and 7-1 in SEC play this season and currently sit at #5 in the BCS rankings. Everything has gone right for them this season (minus the throttling they took in South Carolina) so maybe they're due for an off the field problem.  

Enter Georgia linebacker Matt Stagg. Stagg (far left) was pulled over shortly before midnight on November 8th, for going 40 MPH in a 25 MPH zone. Stagg said that he thought the speed limit was 35 MPH and that he was going to pick up his friend. The officer stated that he smelled alcohol coming from the vehicle, and that Stagg's eyes were glassy, and that he was nervous and shaking at times. Stagg twice denied that he had been drinking, and that his passenger must have been. The officer asked Stagg to exit the vehicle and he allegedly had to hold onto the top of the car when he exited. Stagg took a sobriety test and a breathalyzer that showed his BAC at .061 and .062.

That would have been perfectly fine, if he wasn't born in 1994, and thus 18 years old. Stagg was ultimately charged with underage possession or consumption of alcohol and DUI.

Stagg has not accumulated any defensive stats this season.
