ATHENS, Ga. - J.J. Frazier, a freshman guard for the Georgia men's basketball team, was arrested and jailed on two misdemeanor driving-related charges on Sunday night.
Frazier was charged with driving without a license after being pulled over on a traffic charge by Athens-Clarke County police. He was also charged with not obeying a stop or yield sign.
Both charges are misdemeanors. A native of Glennville, a town in southeast Georgia, Frazier was released from jail at 1:23 a.m., according to the jail web site.
Frazier, who is listed at 5-foot-10 and 140 pounds in the arrest report, emerged late this season as a key player off the bench. He appeared in 30 games this year, averaging 3.7 points, and was third on the team with 23 made 3-pointers.
Never miss a local story.
He is expected to step into a larger role as a sophomore, sharing time more with starting point guard Charles Mann; head coach Mark Fox said Saturday he would try to play Mann and Frazier together more next season.
