Football: Pair of Georgia linemen arrested on battery charges

Two University of Georgia football players have been arrested and jailed on charges of simple battery.

The Athens-Clarke County Jail report shows offensive linemen Justin Anderson and Trinton Sturdivant were both released within hours of their arrest on Monday night on $1,500 bonds.

Sturdivant, 19, is a starting tackle from Wadesboro, N.C. Anderson, 20, is a guard from Ocilla, Ga.

The incident allegedly occurred early Friday morning at the East Campus Village dormitory on the university’s campus.

The woman who made the complaint said she and a friend were returning to the dorm about 1:30 a.m. when they encountered Anderson, Sturdivant and another unidentified male. She said they touched her without permission and began following her.
