 ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -Georgia defensive end Michael Lemon was suspended from the team Thursday after he was charged with punching a student and breaking his eye socket.
Lemon, a sophomore third-stringer, was charged with misdemeanor battery and felony aggravated battery. He was released on $2,500 bond from Athens-Clarke County jail.
His arrest was yet another legal entanglement for the team. Seven Georgia players have been arrested since the end of the 2007 season. The school said it is university policy that an athlete charged with a felony is indefinitely suspended pending an investigation.
``I'm certainly disappointed in a few of our players who have made poor decisions during the offseason,'' coach Mark Richt said. ``It is of great concern and we take it very seriously. They will be dealt with accordingly and will pay a price. Each one will be disciplined based on the severity of their actions.''
Lemon is accused of punching DeMarius Jackson. Two other players, offensive linemen Justin Anderson and Trinton Sturdivant, were arrested on misdemeanor battery charges Monday night. They are accused of rubbing the stomach of a pregnant woman without permission.
Richt said sophomore offensive guard Clint Boling will be suspended for the first two games of the season following an alcohol-related arrest in the spring.
Senior defensive end Jeremy Lomax, charged in early June with speeding and carrying a concealed weapon, has been exonerated of the concealed weapon charge.
