Georgia safety Josh Harvey-Clemmons suspended from season opener for violating student-athlete drug policy.

So much for a relatively quiet Georgia offseason. Bulldog head football coach Mark Richt as announced that safety-linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons has been suspended for the Dawgs' season opener against Clemson. The reason given for Harvey-Clemons' suspension was "a violation of the UGA student-athlete drug policy."

SB*Nation is reporting the suspension is for marijuana use, resulting from an incident on May 15.

"On May 15, police were reportedly called to a dorm room on campus where an odor of marijuana was detected. Inside, Harvey-Clemons and tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith admitted they had "smoked a blunt," but officers were unable to find marijuana in the room, although the pair were said to have "exhibited signs of marijuana ingestion."

Although the players were advised that there wasn't enough physical evidence to warrant criminal prosecution, the incident was reported to the school and football coaches."

Flournoy-Smith has since transferred out from Georgia. 

Harvey-Clemons was the player whom as a recruit, worked for his grandfather's bail bondsman service. This led to an incident where Richt went to a Valdosta area jail with the elder Clemons' wife when Harvey-Clemons was on the job. Neither Richt nor Harvey-Clemons' grandfather are probably not happy with him right now.
