Blog: Commings on university probation for conduct violation

Georgia cornerback Sanders Commings, who was given a two game suspension by coach Mark Richt last week, reached an informal resolution with the university’s Office of Student Conduct last Friday related to his domestic violence arrest on Jan. 21.

Commings admitted to violating university conduct regulations by engaging in “physical abuse, physical intimidation, coercion, and/or other conduct that threatened or endangered the health of safety of another person,” according to a copy of the document obtained by the Athens Banner-Herald under an open records request.

Commings will be on university probation until Aug. 17, must complete an anger management program, complete an alcohol/drug education program and perform 25 hours of community service. Another related code of conduct violation will likely result in being suspended by the university.

Police said Commings hit a woman in downtown Athens who had lived with Commings.

The senior won’t play in the Sept. 1 opener against Buffalo and the Southeastern Conference opener Sept. 8 at Missouri.

His arraignment in Athens-Clarke County state court is scheduled for March 22.
