Georgia Cornerback Commings Jailed In Athens

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — University of Georgia football player Sanders Commings has been jailed in Athens on a domestic violence charge.

UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson says the 21-year-old senior cornerback was arrested early Saturday after he struck his girlfriend in the face on a street corner in downtown Athens.

Williamson says bystanders saw Commings in a confrontation with the woman at about 1 a.m. and separated them. He says the witnesses then flagged down a police officer for help.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports remained jailed Saturday afternoon and may have to wait until Sunday to have a bond set by a judge.

Police did not immediately identify the woman Commings is accused of striking. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
