Football Players Not Involved in Taxi Case

Release from the ACCPD

"Investigation into the report of Simple Battery and Terroristic Threats filed by HUTSON and MEGHAN VANN of an incident which occurred in a taxi on March 28 has determined the offenders are NOT University of Georgia football players. However, one football player was in the taxi, but the investigation revealed he acted as a peace maker and tried to calm the situation. The other males have been identified as residents of Heard County and warrants are pending. Additional information will be released when the warrants are issued."

Still not sure if we'll get comment from Richt today or not. I'll post more as we get it.

And now a short infomercial on the dangers of jumping to conclusions...

(*Note: And here's a good example of jumping to conclusions.)

Good news all around.

Meanwhile the smear has already taken place thanks to the Good Ole Athens PD and the way they wrote the report up.

Guess there are a lot of posters who jumped to conclusions who are gonna come by and admit they were wrong . . .

Nope, probably not.

Yeah anon 4:50, and we'll be hearing "we're sorry" from all the north campus garbage makers too...

That letter you linked to in the example is incredibly frustrating for so many reasons. My main problem with it though would be the author's assumption that the Richt can get the APD to drop charges and let him handle the discipline! What is she basing this assumption on? How can anyone that lives in Athens think that the APD will drop charges after an arrest occurs just so the coach can handle the discipline?

Sorry for the rant, but that viewpoint and the fact that the red and black would include the letter makes my blood boil.

The red and black editorial page is filled with letters from pompous, know it all 20 year olds who have absolutely no idea how the things operate in the real world.

probably the minority opinion, but i dont exactly think people were jumping too far with their conclusions. i mean, how many respectable people do you know that associate with others who spend their nights hitting and verbally abusing women. i dont care if the football player in question was mediating or not... or even to what extent. if he associates with those kind of people, he deserves every bit of reputation smearing that he gets.

i think its sickening that people actually want to support a player who associates with slime like that.

Anon 12:00, I have a lot of friends that are slime balls, but I'm hoping that one day they might change. Doesn't mean I'd hang out with them at 2 a.m., but if your friend does something stupid, does that make you stupid? If so, how do stupid people get so many friends.

You take the assumption too far. No, he should not have been out w/ guys that can't handle themselves. And he probably learned from it. And he probably needs to make better decisions. But having knucklehead friends doesn't make you a knucklehead. It makes you a friend.

Anon 6:49: Georgia beat writer blogs are filled with pompous, know it all anonymous commenters with horrible grammar. These people often live in "real" worlds and we're never 20 years old at any point in their lives.

sUGArdaddy, well said.

Dontavius Jackson is from Heard County. Is he the unnamed intermediary?
