ATHENS - Former Georgia defensive lineman Johnathan Taylor, dismissed last summer after a felony domestic battery arrest, has enrolled at Alabama.
Taylor played this past season at Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi. Alabama confirmed Wednesday that Taylor had enrolled in classes, but the football team has not yet confirmed his joining the program.
Taylor's domestic battery case has not been resolved yet, Athens-Clarke County district attorney Ken Mauldin said Wednesday. Taylor was indicted on Nov. 25, and is awaiting arraignment at a date yet to be decided. Mauldin said it could be within a month.
Mauldin said "it wouldn't be best" to comment on details of the case against Taylor. He also said he had not had spoken to anyone at Alabama about Taylor's case.
Never miss a local story.
"I haven't talked to anybody about that," Mauldin said. "That wouldn't have any bearing on what we do."
Asked if his office was serious about pursuing the case against Taylor, Mauldin said: "He was indicted by the grand jury in Clarke County, and he's scheduled for arraignment. That's kind of where we're at."
Taylor was charged in July after an altercation with his girlfriend, after witnesses said he struck her, and police said there were "visible marks" on her neck.
It was the second arrest of the year for Taylor, although the first one was a misdemeanor. Taylor was one of four players charged with double-cashing scholarship checks from UGA. He eventually entered pre-trial intervention, and was not facing suspension for any games last season.
