Georgia staff member arrested for reckless driving, speeding

Georgia coaching staff member Jarvis Jones was arrested for reckless driving and speeding less than 24 hours before the two-time defending champion Bulldogs' season opener.

Jones, a former All-American linebacker at Georgia who played four seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is the Bulldogs player connection coordinator under coach Kirby Smart. Athens-Clarke County Police arrested Jones, Friday night, on misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and speeding-maximum limits.

He was released on $2,400 bond.

Georgia, which has won back-to-back national titles, opened its season on Saturday night with a 48-7 win over UT Martin.

At least a dozen Bulldog players have been charged with moving violations since the team won the championship in January.
