Two UGA linemen facing in-house discipline

Georgia offensive linemen Justin Anderson and Trinton Sturdivant will face ‘in-house’ discipline and will not be subjected to suspension for their roles in an incident that led to their arrests on simple battery charges last month.

That was the word from Bulldogs coach Mark Richt, who met with a small group of reporters before his main session in the Grand Ballroom of the Wynfrey Hotel at SEC Football Media Days.

“I’m handling their situation in-house,” Richt said. “Unless something else comes up, it’s not going to be a playing time situation.”

Anderson and Sturdivant were arrested on June 30 after a pregnant woman accused them of inappropriately touching her belly the previous Friday night at East Campus Village dormitory. The victim claimed she did not know the two players before encountering them in a breezeway late that night.

Sturdivant started every game at left tackle as a true freshman last season and Anderson, a redshirt freshman, is considered potential starter at guard.

Three Georgia players are currently suspended for the first and/or second games this season due to run-ins with the law: Sophomore guard Clint Boling, junior safety Donovan Baldwin and sophomore fullback Fred Munzenmaier. Sophomore defensive end Michael Lemon was dismissed from the team after being charged with felony aggravated battery.
