ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — University of Georgia tailback Isaiah Crowell faces felony weapons charges after police found a gun in his vehicle early Friday morning.

Athens-Clarke Police Department spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow says Crowell was arrested at a vehicle checkpoint on the UGA campus at around 2:20 a.m. Among the charges he faces are carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon on school property.

Crowell consented to a search after officers smelled marijuana in the vehicle. Police found a 9-millimeter Luger pistol under the driver’s seat with an altered serial number.

Crowell, 19, came to UGA in 2011 as the top-rated running back prospect in the country and was slated to start for the Bulldogs this fall.

Crowell remains in custody at the Athens-Clarke County jail and is not eligible for bond.
