ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -Georgia coach Mark Richt has doubled the one-game suspension given to fullback Fred Munzenmaier following his arrest last weekend for underage possession or consumption of alcohol.
The incident report filed by Athens-Clarke County police included details of Munzenmaier's inappropriate exchange with the arresting officer.
Munzenmaier told the officer it was obvious the police have it ``out for them,'' according to the report, and that police have a point system for athletes.
Munzenmaier later used an expletive to tell the officer to be quiet, according to the report.
``The way he handled the situation with the police officer was totally inappropriate and demonstrated a lack of respect for authority,'' Richt said. ``We expect our players, just like my children, to show total respect at all times for those in authority and especially police officers.''
Munzenmaier, who will be a sophomore, will miss the first two games of the 2008 season against Georgia Southern and Central Michigan.
Defensive back Donavon Baldwin also was arrested by University of Georgia police for driving under the influence of alcohol and improper driving. He was given a one-game suspension.
