Georgia basketball player J.J. Frazier was arrested late Sunday night on a charge of driving without a license after he was pulled over during a traffic stop.
The freshman guard from Glennville was booked into the Clarke County Jail at 10:27 p.m. and was released at 1:23 a.m. Monday on bonds totaling $1,000 for two misdemeanors.
Frazier led Georgia with 15 points in its final game of the season on Saturday, a 79-71 National Invitation Tournament second-round loss to Louisiana Tech. He was third on the team this season with 23 3-pointers and averaged 3.7 points per game.
Athens-Clarke County police pulled over Frazier at about 9:15 p.m. Sunday after an officer saw a 2007 Dodge Charger he was driving traveling northbound on Bloomfield Street fail to obey a stop sign at the intersection of Cloverhurst Ave. When Frazier, 18, was asked for his license, he told the police officer he left it at the dorm, police spokesperson Hilda Sorrow said.
“A computer check revealed Frazier was unlicensed, so he arrested him for driving without a license and he was also cited for sto sign/yield sign violation,” Sorrow said.
Football player Shaq Wiggins also was arrested in January for driving on a suspended license. Such arrests on the football team usually have not brought a suspension.
