Georgia safety Alec Ogletree has been suspended for Saturday's opener.
Ogletree was arrested Friday and charged with "theft by taking," a misdemeanor. He was booked at the Clarke County jail at 2:07 p.m., according to jail records, with bail set at $1,500.
A short time later, Georgia announced his suspension for a "minimum" of one game.
"Certainly it’s an unfortunate sequence of events.” head coach Mark Richt said in a statement. "I’m disappointed in the situation and will continue to gather information as the case is processed through the proper legal channels. In the meantime, Alec is still responsible for a poor decision and will serve a minimum one game suspension as a result."

Ogletree becomes the ninth Georgia player to be arrested this year.
He also becomes the third player suspended for the opener as a result of an arrest. Tailback Washaun Ealey is sitting out after his arrest last week on three misdemeanors stemming from hitting a parked car. Receiver Tavarres King is also out for the opener after a July alcohol-related arrest.
