Ogletree arrested for DUI

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Former Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree, a potential first-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft was arrested for DUI, reports Pro Football Talk.

Ogletree accounted for 98 tackles, including 11.5 tackles for a loss last season and also recorded three sacks, five pass breakups and one interception.

Ogletree had 8.5 tackles for loss, an interception, fumble recovery and returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown in Georgia's SEC Championship Game loss to Alabama.

"Last weekend, my client Alec Ogletree was pulled over for speeding and a lane violation in Arizona," agent Pat Dye, Jr. tells PFT. "After the officers smelled alcohol, they conducted tests and also cited him for DUI. Although Alec regrets this incident terribly, he is thankful that there was no accident and that no one was hurt. Because this matter is still pending, we cannot comment further publicly at this time."

Ogletree, a second-team All-SEC selection, was suspended four games during the 2012 season after a positive drug test. Ogletree was also suspended for the first game of the 2010 season following an arrest for misdemeanor theft.
