Georgia tailback Isaiah Crowell was arrested early Friday morning on three weapons charges, two of them felonies, according to published reports. Crowell, who was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a weapon in a school zone and carrying an altered ID, was considered to be the starting running back for the Bulldogs heading into this fall, according to Scout.com. Crowell was arrested following a vehicle checkpoint on East Campus Road and Greene Street on the Georgia campus, around 2:20 a.m. ET, according to Athens-Clarke County spokesman Hilda Sorrow. Crowell was booked at 3:37 a.m. and remains in Clarke County jail, according to the jail's website. The police report written by arresting officer Kathryn Thornton noted that she had been working a road block on East Campus Road and Green Street near the Ramsey Center on campus, according to Scout.com. The report claims that Crowell had four other teammates in the car with him: True freshman Blake Tibbs, Josh Harvey-Clemons, Sheldon Dawson and sophomore Quintavious Harrow. After approaching the road block the officer reported that Crowell didn't have his seatbelt on, and that Thornton said she smelled marijuana from the car. Crowell said he'd been at the club "Aftermath" and that was likely where the smell was coming from. Thornton asked if marijuana had been smoked in the car... Crowell said no, but that the smell was likely from the club. Crowell then allowed to a search of his person. "I didn't locate any contraband on his person," she said in the report. Other officers asked why Crowell was so nervous. Officers searched Harrow, Clemons, Dawson and Tibbs, but none had contraband on them. Thornton checked under the driver's seat, and located a Luger 9mm and which time, she placed Crowell, who had claimed the car as his, under arrest. Crowell said other people drive his car and that he does not have a handgun permit. The officer also indicated in her report that Crowell does not have a criminal history. Crowell, a former five-star recruit, finished his freshman season with 850 yards and five touchdowns, but was riddled with injuries and sat out some time due to suspensions. Crowell's arrest is another offseason hit for the Bulldogs. As first reported by Scout.com earlier this year, starting linebacker Alec Ogletree and All-American safety Bacarri Rambo are both facing suspensions for at least the first two games. Brandon Smith, who will likely start at cornerback and has played some running back, will miss at least one game after being arrested for possession of marijuana in Alabama.
