ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia defensive tackle Kedric Golston and linebacker Derrick White were arrested for disorderly conduct for their roles in a bar fight.

Golston also was charged with simple battery of a police officer and obstruction of a law enforcement officer. All charges are misdemeanors.

The fight happened early Sunday morning. According to an incident report, officers tried to control an "irate" White when Golston approached them and insisted they let him go.

Golston refused to step back when asked and was arrested. He was released on a $9,000 bond and White was released on $500 bond.

Coach Mark Richt is still investigating what happened, associate athletic director Claude Felton said.

"He's trying to talk to everybody involved and find out all the details so he'll have an understanding of exactly what transpired," Felton said.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Golston started every game last season, recording 23 tackles and 1.5 sacks. White started seven games last season and had 38 tackles, and was vying for a starting spot in 2005.
