Freshman football player kicked off team after DUI arrest

After a forgettable weekend on the field, Georgia football suffered further loss with yet another player arrest.

Linebacker Demetre Baker was kicked off the team following an arrest early Sunday.
“Demetre has been dismissed from the football team,” head coach Mark Richt said.
Baker, 19, was booked by the Athens-Clarke County Police at 4:26 a.m. Sunday and charged with DUI, underage possession and improper driving, according to police records.
He was released at 11 a.m. on $2,500 bond.

Baker, a freshman, is the 10th Georgia football player arrested and fourth dismissed from the team in the past year.

Previous dismissals include quarterback Zach Mettenberger, linebacker Montez Robinson and punter Trent Dittmer.

“We have had enough issues off the field that it’s been a big distraction and sad for our young men and for our program and the University and everybody else,” Richt said.

Referencing the severity of the punishment, Richt said Baker “was fully aware of the possible consequences that resulted from this kind of decision.”

The arrest came just hours after the Bulldogs suffered a 24-12 loss to Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss., for the first time since 1974.

Baker did not accompany the team for the game according to the team’s dress-out roster.

Baker, a native of Orange Park, Fla., had not played in a game for the Bulldogs this season and was expected to redshirt.

Richt said he had not yet addressed the team and that they would meet today as scheduled.
