Drummond's arrest occurred last July on Lake Lanier, after reportedly failing field sobriety and breath tests. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the guilty plea could result in Drummond missing the 2012 season opener.
"We'll gather the facts and if it is what it is, he'll be suspended 10 percent of the game," head coach Paul Johnson said.
Drummond recorded 44 tackles in 11 games of action (six starts) as a sophomore in 2011, he is expected to be the starter in 2012 and his absence from the opener could be costly.
