Georgia CB Wiggins arrested for driving with a suspended license

Georgia cornerback Shaq Wiggins was arrested Sunday night by Athens-Clarke County police for driving on a suspended license after being pulled over for speeding.

Wiggins started eight games last season as a freshman, leading the team with two interceptions and making 19 tackles.

He was booked into the Clarke County Jail at 10:30 p.m. Sunday and released on bonds totaling $2,000 at 12:09 a.m. Monday.

Wiggins was pulled over after being clocked driving on College Station Road near the Barnett Shoals intersection going 52 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone, according to police.

“As (the officer) ran his driver’s license doing a check, it returned for a failure to appear so he arrested him for that,” said Hilda Sorrow, Athens-Clarke County police spokeswoman.

Wiggins’ license was suspended for not appearing in court but she could not provide details on the previous charge or which court it was.

Wiggins, who played at Sandy Creek High School, is unlikely to face any suspension for the arrest. Defensive lineman John Atkins was arrested last June for driving only with a learner’s permit and coach Mark Richt handled the discipline internally. Richt is aware of Wiggins’ arrest.
