ATHENS - Georgia freshman cornerback Shaq Wiggins was arrested Sunday evening on two misdemeanor traffic charges.
Wiggins was booked on charges of driving with a suspended license, and of speeding. He was released on bond just after midnight.
It happened when Wiggins pulled over on College Station road around 9:30 p.m., when an Athens-Clarke County police officer clocked Wiggins for going 52 mph, 17 over the posted limit. It was then that the officer discovered Wiggins to be driving on a suspended license, according to public information officer Hilda Sorrow.
Wiggins, 19, started the final eight games this season for the Bulldogs. He led the team with two interceptions, and had the only defensive touchdown of the season, on an interception return at Vanderbilt.

Georgia's student-athlete policy does not carry an automatic game suspension for a misdemeanor arrest, though head coach Mark Richt in the past has suspended some players, depending on the circumstances.
