DEVELOPING: Crowell Faces Suspension For Felony Arrest (UPDATED)

((HT: AJC/Towers))

Looks like the career of University of Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell has, probably, come to a crashing close...

Crowell, this morning, is in the Athens-Clarke County (GA) Jail (pictured, thanks County Sheriff's Department) on three weapons charges, two of them felonies.
Crowell is up on charges of possessing a concealed weapon, having a weapon in a school zone and having an altered ID mark on that weapon. His bond, originally set at $7,500, was raised to $9,500.

From Towers:

According to Athens-Clarke police spokesperson Hilda Sorrow, Crowell was arrested at a “vehicle check-point” — or road block — on East Campus Road at Green Street at 2:20 a.m. Friday. Officer Kristin Thornton reported smelling the odor of marijuana in Crowell’s 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis. Crowell gave consent to search the vehicle, himself and four other unnamed occupants. No marijuana was discovered but a 9-mm Luger handgun with an altered serial number was found under the driver’s seat. Crowell was immediately arrested and taken to jail and the car was impounded.

Last year, Crowell was suspended for the New Mexico State game for a "violation of team rules" - supposedly for failing a drug test...

He was listed as the Number One tailback in the country out of Carver-Columbus (GA) High School when he signed with the University of Georgia...

We anticipate that Crowell will be heading to a place like Jacksonville State and play with Washaun Ealey- the Gamecocks seem to be a roster where Bulldogs go to die...

And how does someone get a Luger at the age of 19...???
Wait, the HQ doesn't want you to answer that...

1500 UPDATE:
According to the police report, four other Georgia football players were also in Crowell’s vehicle- outside linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons, wide receiver Blake Tibbs, defensive back Sheldon Dawson, and defensive back Quintavius Harrow.

None of the four others were charged.
