Georgia men's tennis player Alex Diaz was arrested Thursday afternoon on a felony charge of selling a Schedule I or II controlled substance.
This arrest is in conjunction with a UGA police department investigation into a prescription drug theft that occurred at the campus tennis facility in May. That investigation concluded earlier in the week. Diaz is the son of men's tennis head coach Manny Diaz.
The younger Diaz's bond was set at $6,000.
UGA announced Diaz is facing an indefinite suspension as a result to his arrest.

"The suspension will remain in effect pending an internal review," the statement reads.
Alex Diaz's arrest comes only two days after former assistant coach Bo Hodge was arrested for felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and misdemeanor theft by taking. His bond also totaled $6,000.
Warrants were issued for both Diaz and Hodge earlier in the week. Hodge's possession charge was considered to be of the "purchasing" variety, whereas Diaz was accused of selling controlled substances.
In June, it was revealed Hodge, a former Georgia player, would not be brought back to help coach the men's tennis program. Jamie Hunt, also a former Georgia player, has since been hired to replace him.
Women's tennis assistant Drake Bernstein was involved in the initial investigation, which was launched shortly before the NCAA men's and women's tennis tournaments. Bernstein was not arrested nor included in the arrest warrants following the investigation.
Diaz was a freshman who redshirted during the 2016-17 season.
