Per Barrow County Sheriff Jud Smith, Patrick was arrested on charge of possession of marijuana, less than an ounce, which is a misdemeanor.

Just hours after Georgia defeated Auburn to win its first SEC Championship since 2005, thus sealing its place in the College Football Playoff final four, the Bulldogs were dealt a blow in the form of two arrests.

Patrick was a passenger in a vehicle driven by wide receiver Jayson Stanley.

Two years ago, Patrick and then-teammate Chauncey Rivers were arrested for possession of marijuana. Georgia officials have not yet commented on Patrick's arrest.
