Patrick was a passenger in a vehicle driven by wide receiver Jayson Stanley.

Stanley was arrested and charged with DUI, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, and speeding- going 87-mph in a 65-mph zone.

The arrest took place at 11:50 p.m. but no other details were available and Georgia officials have yet to comment.

Smith said Patrick paid a "small fine" and has since been released. According to 11Live News, Patrick is facing marijuana possession charges.

Patrick was arrested just last month on the same charge.

UGASports.com reported Sunday morning that Patrick, a junior linebacker, is facing a misdemeanor charge after his arrest late Saturday night.

A little over five hours after that game, one starter on that team would find himself in the back of a squad auto.

Athens is in Clarke County, and Barrow County is adjacent to Clarke County, to the west. He was part of Georgia's 28-7 victory over Auburn in the SEC Championship on Saturday.

Two years ago, Patrick and then-teammate Chauncey Rivers were arrested for possession of marijuana.
