UGA QB Mettenberger arrested in South Georgia (UPDATED) | UGA sports blog

Zach Mettenberger, a candidate to be the University of Georgia’s starting quarterback in the fall, was arrested on five misdemeanor charges over the weekend in the south Georgia town of Remerton.

Mettenberger, 18, was charged with underage consumption/possession of alcohol, disorderly conduct, obstruction and two counts of having fake identification, Remerton Police Mike Terrell told the AJC today.

The police report does not provide details about the circumstances of Mettenberger’s arrest at 1:39 a.m. Sunday at the Flip Flops bar in Remerton, which is near Valdosta.

“I don’t have much available right now,” Terrell said in an e-mail. “We are still investigating the circumstances that led to his arrest.”

Mettenberger was transported to the Lowndes County Jail, according to the police report. He later was released on bond.

How do you have 2 counts of fake identification? Carry around 2 fakes and try both of them?

Good lord... what a dumba$$... two fake ID's. Also, please don't put so many exclamation marks next time. I can't believe a College student got arrested for underage drinking, oh my lord! Hopefully it won't happen a dozen times like a certain neighboring school's starting quarterback.

Sounds like either the kid was really belligerent, the cops there are a-holes, or both. They must've hit him with everything they could. Seriously, two counts of having fake id? Plus obstruction and disorderly conduct are offenses they can tack on just about anyone they arrest if they want to. Not really the first impression you wanna make when you're gonna be competing for a starting QB spot.

you'd think that the potential starting QB for the University of Georgia would get a free pass and be allowed to drink in the state of, you know, Georgia...

Nah, for some reason the Police in UGA make a hobby of arresting UGA players for any reason. Had a player arrested last season for parking his scooter on the wrong side of the street while sober. Arrested. No joke.

I can't even pretend to care about alcohol related arrests such as this.

I'd be a pretty terrible cop.

I'd pull over some car and there would be a couple of dead bodies in the backseat... I look over and see it's a UGA player wearing a UGA cap. "I didn't see anything... sign my shirt though."

That's how it used to be. It was a better time then.

Not really, Aaron Murray has always been thought of as a better player. Even by Scout... in fact Scout said Aaron Murray was the best QB they've covered in some video of theirs they released recently... Murray was #1, ahead of Stafford. (#2)

Oh dear God, not a player arrested for *gasp* underage drinking!

The kid got caught being a kid.  I can't believe they arrested him though.  What the hell is going on over there?
