Junior linebacker Darius Dewberry is working two jobs to pay for the damage he inflicted to St. Mary’s Hospital property this past weekend. According to Richt, Dewberry started a job with UGA that he works 8 a.m.-noon each day and another one at St. Mary’s that he works from 8 p.m. to midnight.
In between “he’s with us,” Richt said.
Dewberry’s angry outburst after learning of a teammate’s injuries from a fight resulted in more than $2,000 worth of damage to a parking-lot control arm and four plant-container pots. Richt suspended Dewberry for the first two games and ordered him to get a job to pay for the damages, and Dewberry must do 20 hours of community service. Richt said Dewberry also will work the first two Saturdays of the season while he’s suspended, then he can return to the team full time.
“He’s anxious to pay off his debt,” Richt said. “He was very sincere about that from the start.”
