Whether fair or not, the Georgia Bulldogs have something of a reputation for acquiring minor traffic-related charges from local law enforcement during the offseason. And freshman cornerback Shaq Wiggins' arrest Sunday evening -- only 12 days into this particular offseason -- won't much help matters.
The Macon Telegraph reported that Wiggins was pulled over at approximately 9:30 p.m. Sunday in Athens and booked on charges of speeding and driving with a suspended license. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Per an Athens-Clarke County public information officer, Wiggins was clocked going 52 miles-per-hour in a 35 miles-per-hour zone. He was released after posting bond just after midnight.
A four-star recruit ranked among the top 200 players in the country according to 247Sports, Wiggins appeared in nine games for Georgia as a true freshman, starting the final eight and picking off a team-high two passes. Wiggins returned one of them for a touchdown in the Bulldogs' 31-27 loss to Vanderbilt.
