 ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -Georgia defensive end Michael Lemon has been charged with a felony stemming from a fight last weekend that injured another Georgia student.
Police investigators took out warrants against the sophomore defensive end, charging him with both misdemeanor battery and felony aggravated battery.
Demarius Jackson, 20, of Albany, told police that Lemon sucker-punched him at a cookout Saturday night at an apartment complex.
The 20-year-old Lemon, a 6-foot-4, 274-pounder, accused Jackson of talking to his girlfriend, according to Jackson and witnesses.
The police report said Lemon punched Jackson about five times before he was pulled off.
A conviction on an aggravated battery charges carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
``I'm relieved something finally is being done,'' Jackson told the Athens Banner-Herald. ``It's taken four days, but the warrant was definitely a step in the right direction.''
