Georgia tailback Isaiah Crowell was jailed early on Friday morning on three weapons charges, including two felonies.

Crowell was arrested on charges of carrying a weapon in a school zone, and having an altered ID mark, both felonies. He was also booked on a misdemeanor charge of possessing/carrying a concealed weapon.

Crowell's arrest resulted from a vehicle checkpoint on East Campus Road and Greene Street on the UGA campus, around 2:20 a.m., according to Athens-Clarke County spokesman Hilda Sorrow. Crowell was booked at 3:37 a.m. and remains in Clarke County jail, according to the jail's web site, with bond set at $7,500.

Although this is the first felony arrest of a UGA player in several years, it's not Crowell's first run-in with authority. A failed marijuana test and a suspension were a drag on the highly touted 2011 recruit.

The Bulldogs' seemingly annual string of off-season troubles led USC's Steve Spurrier to quip:

“I don’t know. I sort of always liked playing them that second game because you could always count on them having two or three key players suspended.”
