Georgia AD Damon Evans: do as I say, not as I do
Here’s University of Georgia AD Damon Evans urging Dawg fans not to drink and drive:
Here he is after being arrested for DUI in Atlanta on Wednesday:
The AJC provides the particulars:
University of Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans was arrested on a DUI charge after a late Wednesday night traffic stop in Atlanta.
A Georgia State Patrol trooper pulled over Evans, in his 2009 BMW, shortly before midnight at Roswell Road and Chastain Drive.
“The trooper made the traffic stop after observing the manner he was driving,” said Gordy Wright, the state patrol spokesman. “He got him stopped, detected an odor of alcohol, administered field sobriety and determined he was less safe to be driving.”
The trooper arrested him on charges of DUI and failure to maintain his lane, and took him to the Atlanta city jail. Evans refused to take a breath test, Wright said.
Evans, 40, was released early Thursday. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
According to the article, the arrest came just days before his new contract kicked in, a contract that included a nice $110,000 raise to put him at $550,000 annually. I guess he was in Atlanta celebrating the windfall.
