UPDATE: Word on the street is that all coaches and staff attended a meeting at the Butts-Mehere Heritage Hall at 1:20 PM in Evans’ office. And it’s probably not for doughnuts in the conference room.
Also a little twist, there was an unnamed companion with Evans the night of the arrest. No other details have been released.
UGA Atheltic Director Damon Evans was arrested for a DUI late last night in Atlanta.
A Georgia State Patrol officer pulled over Evans and noticed an odor of alcohol coming from Evans. The officer administered field sobriety tests and decided that Evans would be unfit to drive.
He was charged with a DUI and failure to maintain lane. Evans was pulled over in his 2009 BMW off of Roswell Road and Chastain Drive.
University spokeman Tom Jackson issued this statement through the AJC, “”We’re aware of the report, and I expect we’ll issue a statement later today.”
Evans has been the Atheletic Director since 2004, replacing Vince Dooley.
This mugshot is funny, but it’s probably not the real one because his eyes have to be open. Hooray for the City of Atlanta Police Department.
